Adventure Recreation

Not Your Typical Campus Life

With over 1,000 acres of wooded land, a quiet lake in the campus foreground and four distinct New England seasons, Franklin Pierce University presents an outstanding opportunity to develop outdoor skills, hone recreational techniques and gain individual confidence. From our base camp in Rindge, New Hampshire, exploration opportunities abound. Kayaking, rock climbing, hiking, camping, caving, whitewater rafting and more are available from the Monadnock Region to the White Mountains. Whether you enjoy quiet walks in the woods or adrenaline-infused whitewater rafting trips, the Adventure Recreation Program can create your personal adventure.

Three components make up the Adventure Recreation Program at Franklin Pierce
