READY TO CREATE YOUR ADVENTURE?
Our team has carefully curated a weekend full of activities to choose from. This is a great opportunity to try new activities, enjoy ones you already love, and create a weekend you will remember forever.

HOW TO CREATE YOUR SCHEDULE
  1. Please choose only one 4-hour class per day (rock climbing, mountain biking, paddling, long hike) and fill the rest of your schedule with the shorter 2-hour classes / workshops.
  2. Please do not sign up for the same class/workshop more than once to ensure all participants have the chance to try different activities. Yoga is an exception to this rule - you can sign up for this more than once.. 
  3. If you are interested in a class that is full please sign up for the waitlist. We do have the ability to increase capacity in some classes if there is enough interest.
  4. Please note: You cannot double book time slots. If you select a community event like a meal or happy hour that overlaps with a class you will not be able to sign up for the class. You DO NOT need to add the community events to your schedule as everyone is welcome. so prioritize adding the classes / workshops to your schedule first.
Following these guidelines will help ensure that you don’t overdo it and that everyone will get to have a weekend full of different experiences.

Map & Compass Navigation AKA Staying Found!
Limited Capacity seats available

The best way to avoid getting lost is to make sure you stay found! Sure, most of us carry a cell phone or even a GPS device into the backcountry these days, but we’re gonna go analog in this hands-on workshop by learning the basics of navigating with a map and compass. This handy skillset is great for not only figuring out where you are at any given moment, but also helping you develop confidence off-trail, locate sweet campsites just off the beaten path, identify peaks and other features on the landscape, and show off to all of your friends. No experience necessary and all equipment is provided - just bring your curiosity and prepare for some “Ah-ha!” moments!
