OAS’ Community Programs are examples of our Vision in action. These are programs where everyone, regardless of ability has access to the benefits of the outdoors.

In Summer, our community programs consist of weekly cycling clinics, monthly climbing and golf clinics, and a full day community outings in June, July, August, and September to one of Central Oregon’s many iconic recreation destinations.

In Winter, the climbing club continues while we gather for multiple community Nordic/cross country/snowshoe outings.

Community Programs are open to individuals of any age and ability including family members and friends. We have designated volunteer roles for each event, but we encourage all of our volunteers to join and participate even if not “assigned” a role. The community days are about celebrating an inclusive community while participating in one of the many outdoor sports we love.

To sign up for Community Programs, find the program you are interested in on our EVENTS page.
