Our students meet once a week after school where they learn outdoor skills, get a chance to practice leadership and working in a group. The technical skills they learn prepare them for upcoming wilderness activities such as climbing, navigation, and camp-craft. Sometimes we participate in community service projects during after-school meetings. These meetings are really fun, high energy and keep students engaged!
Check out our schedule to see the meeting times and venues.
Depending on the membership level, students can attend one weekend trip per month. These trips are a wilderness experience, a community service experience, or a combination of both. The trips provide our students opportunity to practice skills learned during weekly meetings and the chance to set and achieve personal and group goals. Plus they are a lot of fun!
Longer summer wilderness adventures are the culmination of the skills and experiences gained in the year-round program. Younger groups members attend a 5-day trip; older group members attend a 10-day trip.
TAASC trips include wilderness expeditions, climbing and rappelling, white water and flat water paddling, cave exploration, mountain biking, wilderness first-aid, leadership development, and community service.
