What is the Warrior Adventure Quest Program?

The Warrior Adventure Quest Program (WAQ) is a free resiliency skills training for Army units that is designed to mitigate boredom and high-risk behavior of soldiers. WAQ is considered an Army RESET training tool designed to introduce soldiers to high adventure activities in an outdoor environment that serve as positive alternatives to aberrant behaviors. This tool presents coping outlets to help Soldiers increase unit cohesion, resiliency, morale, and readiness. WAQ combines existing MWR Outdoor Recreational activities (e.g. rock climbing, zip lining, paintball, ropes course, and others) with a leader-led after action debrief (L-LAAD) developed as a commander’s tool to emphasize on teamwork, unit cohesion, and restoring/enhancing readiness after the activity has been completed. Soldiers will be able to draw similarities between the adventure activity and their Warrior experiences.

Who can participate?

The WAQ program is only for active duty soldiers or reserve units. All units can participate once per calendar year. Deployable units can participate 120 days before their deployment or 120 days after their deployment ends. We are focused on Platoon/Squad size groups, our minimum group size is 25.

Activities offered:

  • Paintball (Max 60)
  • Outdoor rock climbing (Via Ferrata) (30 Max)
  • Indoor rock climbing (25 Max)
  • Zip line & High Ropes Course (30 Max)
  • High Ropes & Horseback Riding (30 Max)
  • Kayaking/Canoeing (25 Max)

All activities provided are based on availability, season pending, and are generally chosen by the Command. For more information reference the actual program, your eligibility, and activity availability contact your local Warrior Adventure Quest representatives at (502)-624-1838.
