Trips

The Outdoor Program provides resource people during each trip who are available to share skills and educate participants about Leave No Trace principles. Each individual is a common adventurer and is responsible for their own decisions and behavior. Participants are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that is courteous and considerate of the diverse group of individuals that may also be participating in the activity. Please email Melissa Ineck for information regarding trips.
