Pioneers - Olympia - 2019

Youth Program

Pioneers - Olympia

Pioneers is a year round program designed for 6-9 year olds 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.

For  youth ages 6-9 and their parents/guardians who are interested in spending time outdoors.  Pioneers is designed to expose youth to a variety of outdoor activities and have fun! They will have the chance to climb, hike, paddle, explore, and learn how to be safe in the outdoors. We encourage parents/guardians to be active participants in the club, knowing that there is plenty of flexibility for the youth to participate in a trip even if a parent/guardian can't make it.

Pioneers membership is $350 in total for the year. A $50 deposit is required and the remainder can be paid in full or in monthly installments.
