We are America Outdoors. And like you, we’re out there – pedaling and paddling, riding and floating, loving that feeling of breathing hard on a trail less traveled. We are a growing, established community of outfitters helping people experience the magnificent wilderness, leading one foot in front of the other.
Our members represent nearly 500 of the most successful and professional outfitters in America -- outdoor recreation companies who are driving one of the world’s fastest-growing industries. Since 1989, America Outdoors has worked to ensure outfitters in the outdoor recreation industry have a voice. Today, we are the one-stop resource for outfitters, leading the industry in public policy, business innovation, and promotion of outdoor recreational activities. Our members constitute a powerful community of like-minded people who aren’t just outdoors for a living – we’re in it for life.
In addition to advocacy in Washington DC, our mission is to help members connect, grow and learn from each other. As a resource for business expertise, we are the only membership-led organization uniquely committed to helping America’s outfitting businesses and those who supply them. America Outdoors works to support and enhance outfitters, providing resources that help outfitting businesses thrive.
From training to increase the quality of staff, to managing risk, navigating regulations and promoting your business through social media, AO members see real benefits to their bottom lines. Connect with your fellow members at our annual conference and other educational events. Members have access to regular updates, case studies and training tips targeted to share expertise and inspire results.
Together on rivers and mountains, roads and trails, America Outdoors is here so you can be out there. We invite you to join us to be Where Outfitters Thrive.
