Who We Are

Outdoor Adventure Quest (OAQ) is the love child of Pokemon Go and The Amazing Race! So yea… we are pretty cool. We are founded by a Lumberjack alum (2004) that has a passion for technology and the great outdoors. Picture this: 1 state. 3 days. 12 outdoor sport categories. 500+ challenge tasks. Are you ready to Quest?

OAQ was founded in 2015 in Denver and is expanding to all four corner states and has both summer & winter quests for each. We are definitely millennial-type workplace that operates completely digitally and does not require anyone to come into the office.

It requires organization, time management, and a strong desire for what you are producing for the company.
