Outdoor Pursuits

January 14, 2020

The purpose of this project is to give introductory exposure to outdoor pursuits that will encourage and motivate youth by participation and exploration.

The goal is for everyone to find at least one outdoor activity that they will enjoy enough to continue pursuing it for the rest of their lives.

Eleven (11) month project with the Call Out meeting in December of each year. Members will be able to vote on the once-a-month activities they will participate in as a group for the year.

Project manuals will be:
Level 1 (grades 3-5) – Hiking Trails
Level 2 (grades 6-8) – Camping Adventures
Level 3 (grades 9-12) – Backpacking Expeditions

Members will complete 3 activities in their manual per year.
