CTX Outdoor Recreation Program

"The earth is the Lord's and everything in it." - Psalm 24:1

What Is CTX Outdoor Recreation All About?

Concordia University Texas views outdoor recreation as an ideal opportunity to empower students to think critically, act compassionately and lead courageously -- especially since we have a 250-acre preserve.

Many of our trips are partnered with Ascend Outdoor Adventures, and all equipment and instruction is provided. Whether you're an avid outdoorsman or new to the scene, we provide everything you need.
