What is Outriders? Outriders is a community program for embracing traditional outdoor skills: Survival, Fishing, Archery, Fire-making and more. We advance culture with awareness and responsibility. We walk the edges where worlds collide. Adventurers. Caretakers. Scholars. Guardians. We are Outriders, forerunners of relearning the ancient outdoor traditions.   

Safety is our Highest Priority. And Who we are. 

We maintain excellence in our safety record since our founding in 2015. Our staff bring a combined decades of experience in outdoor education. Our camp culture is to always pay attention to safety in our operations through diligence, a keen awareness and dedication to quality.
