Peterson AFB OAP is a part of the Colorado Air Force Community and is based out of Colorado Springs. Our aim is to provide recreational programming and training for military members and their families, as well as those affiliated with the military in any way. We also offer college programming and private guided services for the public at large as it is requested.
Our priorities are to offer the highest quality programming at an incredibly affordable cost focussing in on enjoying the natural resources of CO and the four corners area. We develop curriculum based on personal growth, life satisfaction, and overcoming challenge, as well as providing an incredibly fun experience. Though most of our programs are single day, we do run a fair bit of multi-day excursions as well.
We stay involved in many of the leading outdoor associations personally and programmatically to ensure our program remains on the cutting edge of the Outdoor Recreation/Education field. By attending conferences, conducting in-house research, and maintaining great relationships with many similar institutions and companies across the country, we are able to provide the best programming possible for all of our participants, as well as the best training and experience building opportunities for our staff.
Our wide variety of activities allow us to operate year-round and stay diversified, and our staff composition and benefits meet and in most cases exceed the average for the field. Come and check us out and build that professional resume, or just gain a season of great experience while having fun and getting paid! We cater our internships to the needs of each student and we train our part time guides to be the best on the roads, trails, and rivers. If you want a challenge and a taste of the busy and exciting life that accompanies our program, give us a shout!
