Adventure Outpost


Adventure Outpost

Great Parks of Hamilton County created the Adventure Outpost to provide both adults and youths customized group programs through outdoor education. Programs facilitated at the Adventure Outpost are designed to be participant driven operating on a “Challenge by Choice” model and are comprised of activities consisting of team-building, outdoor recreation, and natural education components facilitated by trained and certified staff.

Programs range in length from half and full day experiences to one and two night overnight camping opportunities. Each program is comprised of multiple activities to make a custom program individually organized for every group and can be further adapted based on that group’s needs and goals. There is always room for flexibility within each program as it is the firm objective of the Adventure Outpost to create a framework of activities that will offer participants the opportunity for physical and emotional growth, while meeting social and organizational needs of the guests who reserve the facility. 

Activity offerings are designed to be physically and mentally challenging where team dynamics and personal skills involving leadership, communication, and problem solving are presented in a controlled environment that fosters constructive evaluation and growth for the team and individual.  Selections of commonly offered activities are: eight-element low ropes course, rock climbing tower, archery, canoeing, and kayaking with other programs and presentations available at time of booking. 

Located in Winton Woods the Adventure Outpost offers both an easily accessible and isolated setting to host groups meetings of any size ranging from a few individuals to over 150 participants. We cater to organized groups such as Scouting programs, family and church gatherings, school groups, as well as special needs groups and corporate retreats in a private outdoor environment.

The facility offers on site parking, a program shelter with electricity, BBQ grill, a kitchen with cold storage, flush toilets, heated showers, four cabins that sleep eight individuals each, fire ring, reserved plays field, volleyball net and Winton Lake access.
