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)
