When you look at the cost of an Outdoor Recreation trip, the Single Airman Initiative and the RecOn Initiative will save you a big chunk of money.  So go!


Thanks to the Single Airman Program Initiative (SAPI) grant, Outdoor Recreation offers substantial savings on trips and programs designed to foster a strong culture, mission and sense of community for airmen. For more information, call Outdoor Recreation at 719-556-4867, Option 1.


Outdoor Recreation is able to offer special discounts for the active duty military, reservist and their ID card dependents for some of our adventure programs through a special RecOn grant. You won’t find savings like these anywhere else. If you’re even modestly interested in one of these programs, we encourage you to sign up for it.
