Upcoming Courses and Events:

Mar 11 Wed
Mystery Trip (WSS)
6:00 pm – 10:00 pm

We can’t tell you what we’re doing, but we can tell you this: you’re gonna wanna say you were there. This trip is such a mystery, we don’t even know the day or the leaders yet. It might be Wednesday, Thursday or Friday (March 11, 12, or 13). We’ll tell you all that by Monday the 9th. But that’s all we’ll tell you. That and the gear list: warm clothes, hat and gloves, water bottle, hiking boots, 1 can of spray paint (any color), survival kit, headlamp, camera, clothes that can be painted (permanently), your favorite stick-food to roast and share (hot dogs, shishkabobs, s’mores, etc,), summit flare, all of your family’s expired bear flares (hand-held marine flares), sunglasses.

Meet at Ocean Shores Motel (bottom of Crittenden St) at 6:00 pm.
