Explorers is a year-round outdoor adventure program for youth ages 10-11 who want to learn new outdoor skills and make lasting friendships with fellow adventurers. While there is a focus on developing climbing skills for those who are interested, the program and activities are driven entirely by the participants’ areas of interest. While parents are not required to attend outings, we do encourage parents to join  us! This is a great opportunity for you to get outside with your Explorer!
