Outdoor Recreation and Fitness
Semester 4 | 42 hours (1.5 hours lecture/1.5 hours lab)

Identifying local, provincial, and national recreational organizations for many of the outdoor recreational activities will increase knowledge of general fitness and health promotion opportunities within their community and beyond.
