Below is a quick summary of our weekend trips for the Winter 2017/18 quarter (Dec 1st – Feb 28th).
Older Group and Younger Boys Groups
Climbing Trip: January 13th/14th
Depending on the weather, we’ll either be climbing outside or climbing indoors at the TAASC climbing gym. Being inside to escape the winter weather is a great way to still be able to climb and have a great adventure! This trip is open to Older Group students and the Younger Boys group. We will be staying at the climbing gym for the night. Part of our time there will be to work on our technical rescue skills: litter lowers, vertical rescues
Caving Trip: February 10th/11th
This Caving trip’s goal is to reach as far into the back of the cave as we can get. This is a spelunkers dream trip! We’ll camp out near Erwin after we come out and on Sunday will do a day hike before coming home. This trip is open to the older group and younger boys group
Older Girls Group
Climbing Trip: January 27th & 28th
For this trip we’ll be going to the TAASC climbing gym in Morganton. This is a super cool gym with enough to keep us busy climbing all weekend! Girls will work on their bouldering, climbing and belaying skills. There’s also a fun treehouse to climb outside. We ‘camp’ in the gym so to stay warm and cosy. This is a super fun experience for these girls to participate in.
Caving Trip: February 24th
Exploring into Worleys cave as a group of girl leaders will be awesome! There are many fun and exciting passages, tunnels and chambers to explore and we’ll go with the flow of the group.
Younger Girls Group
Climbing Day Trip: January 20th
A day of climbing indoors at our very own TAASC climbing gym is such a great opportunity. These younger girls will get a chance to learn how to belay as well as boulder and climb to their hearts content. We’ll also be doing some fun activities to reflect on our experience.
Caving Day Trip: February 17th
This will be a super fun trip to get these girls into spelunking! We’ll head into Worleys and have a blast exploring the ‘blow-hole’, the ‘mailbox’ and the ‘otter’s slide’. There are lots of places for the group to go, so the girls will be able to decide as a group where they’d like to explore as we travel further into the cave. This trip is highly recommended as a favorite trip!
