Description: An outdoor leadership program for teens like no other! Designed as an alternative to team sports, our Teen Outdoor Leadership Club teaches teens valuable life skills including leadership, planning, budgeting and social responsibility, to name a few. Teens attend one session per week and plan outdoor activities and events such as backcountry camping trips, skiing trips, surfing trips, kayaking trips, canoeing trips, hiking trips, orienteering sessions, geocaching and fundraising. They may also get the opportunity to test their new leadership skills while working with younger children. This program is driven by the teens!
**Please note that most of the activities the teens plan take place on dates other than their weekly meeting date. Each activity may carry an additional cost that will either necessitate additional fees and/or participant fundraising.**
