Outdoor Nation Campus Challenge
Hiking. Kayaking. Backpacking. Bicycling.
These are just a few of the activities students, faculty, staff, and alumni at Vanderbilt will be participating in from September 18 through October 15 as they compete to win the 4th annual Outdoor Nation Campus Challenge.
This is Vanderbilt’s first year competing in the Campus Challenge. With a team led by Outdoor Recreation and multiple student organizations across campus, Vanderbilt has their eyes on the top prize: the title of National Outdoor Champion.

Hosted by the Outdoor Foundation, a nonprofit committed to reconnecting millennials with the outdoors, and sponsored by REI, The North Face, Hydro Flask, and ENO, the Campus Challenge aims to get students from more than 90 universities off the couch and into the wilderness. To participate, students simply download the Campus Challenge app, join their university’s team, and log their outdoor activities during the Challenge to score points. Prizes for winners include national titles, free outdoor gear, and most importantly, bragging rights.
