Outdoor Adventure Club

The Outdoor Adventure Club Program allows us to deepen our impact and spend more time with participants. Participants in the Outdoor Adventure Clubs meet with LOOP NOLA staff members and a school faculty advisor after school weekly and plan monthly outdoor adventures on the weekend. The students elect their own leadership team and choose from a variety of outdoor adventures including canoeing paddles, high ropes challenges, environmental education excursions, community service projects, overnight camping trips, and fishing trips. They also plan and train for a multiday adventure summer trip to North Carolina, supported by KatyCares, Inc.


LOOP NOLA aims to have the highest level of impact as possible on participants in our Outdoor Adventure Clubs. Through student engagement, development of meaningful relationships, dedication to a positive group and consistent support and structure in accomplishing difficult adventure sports, a safe space is created. Through the club, participants gain positive adult mentors in LOOP NOLA staff members and ownership over their adventures, showing them what they are able to accomplish by themselves and as a team. By creating a safe environment, participants can utilize outdoor spaces to heal, learn, and be empowered to design a better vision for their future.
