Get Active Week: Adventure Center Open House

FREE! Community Open House at the Adventure Center
325 N Annie Glidden Rd, DeKalb, IL 60115 

We welcome the DeKalb and Sycamore community and families to visit and learn about what the NIU Outdoor Adventure program has to offer, hint it’s a lot!  Take a tour and learn about the 50+ items available for low-cost rentals, resources such a library of maps and books to help you plan and prepare for a wide variety of outdoor activities. 

Crate climbing will also be available on Court 4 in the main gym. This challenging activity involves stacking and scaling crates as high as you can it’s harder than it looks, but you’ll catch on quick!   You are suited in a harness and belayed by an experienced Outdoor Adventure Leader.  How high can you climb without the crate tower toppling over?

No Registration Required!
