Explorers - Olympia - 2019

Youth Program

Explorers-Olympia

For youth ages 10-13 who are interested in spending time outdoors. No experience or skills needed to join - we will teach all the skills they will need to participate in an activity. The group gets together every month to learn skills and go on 1-2 outings a month.

Explorers is a year-round outdoor adventure program for youth ages 10-13 who want to learn new outdoor skills and make lasting friendships with fellow adventurers.  The group goes on 1-2 outings a month and guardians are welcome to come along! This is a great opportunity for you to get outside with your Explorer, learn some new skills, and be a part of The Mountaineer community!

The price of Explorers is $75 the first month, with a monthly installments of $30 each month after.
