Schofield Barracks & Fort Shafter Outdoor Recreation (ODR) Centers are your source for island adventure programs, recreational programs and equipment checkout. Our trained instructors can take you on guided tours around the island, teach you how to stand-up paddle, rent you equipment for your next company function or birthday party, or provide advice on what to do and where all across Hawaii.

The Fort Shafter location also runs a popular feed store on Saturdays. We offer a wide variety of feed for livestock, at low prices for our military community. 

No matter what outdoor activities you’re into, we can help. We can advise you on what permits may be required for your excursion, best places and times to conduct activities, or simply share helpful safety information to help you have an amazing experience!

Warrior Adventure Quest (WAQ)

Warrior Adventure Quest (WAQ) is an Army RESET training tool designed to introduce Soldiers to activities that serve as alternatives to aberrant behaviors often associated with accidents involving recently re-deployed Soldiers. This tool presents coping outlets to help Soldiers realize their own new level of normal after deployment and "move on" with their lives.

WAQ combines existing MWR Outdoor Recreation high adventure activities with a leader-led after action debriefing (L-LAAD) tool developed by Army Medical Department (AMEDD) center and school.

Our current adventures available for WAQ include:

  • Mountain Biking
  • Trail & Trap (Mountain biking and archery/paintbal trap shooting)
  • Re-ball  (Paintless Paintball) 

Schofield Barracks Outdoor Recreation WAQ is currently being offered to all units. For more information, please contact ODR at (808) 787-4097

Stoneman Field Disc Golf Course

Have you seen the new disc golf course at Stoneman Field on Schofield Barracks? It's open for the community to use now on a first come-first serve basis.

 All ages are welcome but children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult.

A huge thank you to everyone involved with making the course a reality including Healthy Army Communities -HAC, the 29th Brigade Engineer Battalion, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 25th ID and other Soldiers and civilian employees across U.S. Army Hawaii.


Pickle Ball Courts

Pickleball is a fun outdoor racket/paddle sport on Schofield Barracks where two players or more hit a perforated hollow polymer ball over a 36-inch-high net using solid-faced paddles. Opponents on either side of the net hit the ball back and forth until one side commits a rule infraction. Its fun, its easy and a whole lot of sport for families and friends!

Pickleball courts are located off Trimble Road, across from Sgt. Smith Theater. 

21.491528, -158.056882 (copy and paste into google maps).

Nets must be rented and are included in the Pickleball package available at Schofield Barracks Outdoor Recreation Equipment Rental (net, paddles & balls).
