ODR Passport Program

This autumn, Outdoor Recreation launched a passport program to help military families experience scenic Pennsylvania. This passport is your ticket to not only experience backcountry Pennsylvania but to learn new outdoor skills, and socialize with your military counterparts. The passport is a year-round program, in which to complete, participants must attend a total of three outdoor events.


These outings include, but are not limited to: Ultralight Backpacking, Snowshoeing, Cross-Country Skiing, Ultimate Sledding, Hiking, Biking, Kayaking, First Aid & CPR/AED Certifications, Bike Maintenance Clinics and many other Outdoor Clinics. The passport must be completed by May 22, 2015 with a limit of only one passport per person. Participants who complete the passport program receive a T-shirt with the Outdoor Recreation logo on the front; on the back, displayed is our challenge to you, “Do you have what it takes to complete the full Carlisle experience.”

Recently, five adventuresome folks from Carlisle have proven that they in fact have “what it takes to complete the full Carlisle experience.” While completing the passport program, these individuals participated in outdoor adventure sports in which they were able to fully experience the great outdoors. The passport program is for everyone, regardless of age or skill level. By incorporating the passport program here at Outdoor Recreation our goal is for you, the customer, to experience a variety of year-round outdoor activities and have fun doing so. If you’re interested in participating in the passport program, please feel free to stop by Outdoor Recreation (Building 860) or contact us at
