OUTDOOR EXPLORERS CLUB VOLUNTEERING

Do you like working with children? What about exploring the great outdoors? If you answered yes, join us at Bridport Elementary School to help lead an after-school club for 1st-4th graders!

CAMEL'S HUMP WITH CLIFF 
Saturday & Sunday, March 8th-9th
Enjoy your weekend with a refreshing hike up Camel's Hump, Vermont's third highest peak! After sleeping in on Saturday, we will depart campus around 2pm and hike a couple of miles to the shelter where we will cook a tasty dinner and have a cozy night's sleep. On Sunday morning we will summit the peak and descend the Burrows Trail back to the van, and return to campus Sunday afternoon. No experience is necessary; Saturday will entail ~2mi hiking, Sunday will entail ~4mi. We may snowshoe depending on trail/snow conditions. Sign up here!
