After-School Adventure Club is a small group of youth ages 6-12 that meets on Thursdays from 3:00-5:00 to enjoy outdoor adventures together. Each week we will meet at a local park where we can hike, explore the nearby beach, and learn a variety of outdoor skills including navigation, outdoor cooking, Leave No Trace, and much more. 

Here is the planned destination schedule:

May 6: Nature Stories  and Adventures at Pioneer Park

May 13: Rock Creations at Tolmie State Park

May 20: Migrating Newts at McLane Creek Nature Trail

May 27: Nature Journaling at Margaret McKinney Park

The intent of this group is to get kids involved in in-person, outdoor activities in a safe manner during the COVID-19 pandemic, while also providing a few hours of childcare for parents during the week. Groups will consist of a maximum of 10 kids and 1-2 staff and volunteers.

All activities will be outdoors so please dress appropriately.
