    Leave No Trace

    Mission Statement:

    Taking care of the beautiful resources that God has given us is a vital part of Outdoor recreation. Each year thousands upon thousands of acres are damaged and destroyed by humans. Fires, erosion, pollution, overuse and carelessness ruin national treasures and threaten wildlife species & ecosystems. All Lee University Campus Recreation practices and teaches Leave No Trace on all excursions. Help us preserve the environment that we are blessed with when you head for the great outdoors.

    Whether a student is an outdoor person or a ‘city slicker,’ the University’s recreation programs offer a variety of opportunities to either taste the outdoors or give a true wilderness adventure. College credit is offered through certain classes. The center offers backpacking, rock climbing, ropes courses, canoe and kayak lessons, and even skiing.
