The Outdoor Adventure Center (OAC) was established to provide excellent outdoor programs and support to Unity College students, staff, and faculty. OAC adventure and outdoor experiences help individuals discover and grow.
The challenge course at Unity College was built in 1985. It consists of a series of activities utilizing ropes, cables, and logs, set in a wooded area of the campus for the low course, and in the gym for the high course. The activities are designed to challenge both individuals and groups physically, emotionally, and socially. As safety is paramount, the instructors are trained to help participants take an active role in keeping everyone safe.
The OAC Equipment Room is a supply room of outdoor gear and equipment for use by Unity College students, faculty, and staff. We have canoes, recreation kayaks, stoves, maps, sleeping bags, backpacks, and much more.
The Equipment Room is open Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. It is closed Saturday and Sunday.
Willard Climbing Wall
The Willard Climbing Wall (WCW) is a 30+ foot climbing wall with seven top ropes and many bouldering routes. The amazing features of the WCW that make each climb unique include the geometry of the curved surfaces, the natural rock texture and feel, and the dynamic routes. All students and staff of any experience level are welcome to use the WCW. Our instructors can help with techniques and belaying, and offer climbing clinics to advance your skills. The WCW promotes safety, student leadership, and hands-on experiential learning. Even more, the WCW will engage and challenge your mind, body, and spirit!.
The WCW is always open for bouldering, except during top-rope climbing hours.
Top Rope Hours:
Monday through Thursday 7:00 p.m to 9:00 p.m.
Thursdays 7:00 pm. to 8:00 p.m.
All UC students and employees are welcome.
