WAQ is designed to re-create the adrenaline rush of combat action and provide a healthy outlet for stress in a safe and supervised high adventure activity facilitated by the Outdoor Recreation Staff.

Warrior Adventure Quest instills unit cohesion, builds teamwork, empowers small unit leaders, and maintains combat readiness through high-adventure outdoor activities. This program enables Soldiers to reach a "new normal" by diminishing boredom and high-risk behavior through outdoor recreation and Leader Led After Action Debriefing. Soldiers will be able to draw similarities between the adventure activity and their Warrior experiences.

  • Programs are focused at Platoon Level (during duty hours)

  • On-post WAQ programs can be customized, but generally run Tuesday-Thursday, 8 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. for 12-60 Soldiers and consist typically of 2 outdoor activities in 2-hour time blocks.  On-post activities include but are not limited to: Challenge Course, Skeet, Paintball, Adventure Race, Archery, Laser Tag, Mountain Biking, Battleship and Indoor Rock Climbing.

  • Off-post WAQ activities are available for 10-24 Soldiers depending on schedule.  Off-post activities include but are not limited to:  Rock Climbing, Mountain Biking, Scuba, Paddling, Canoeing, Kayaking, and Stand-up paddle boarding.
