Outdoor Program Workshop Series

Learn, Play, Grow

Every week we will have opportunities for students to learn a variety of skills from kayaking, Backpacking 101, climbing techniques, wilderness medicine, and even backcountry cooking.

These two-hour sessions are for students to come together, learn new skills, share knowledge, and meet new people!
