Below is a quick summary of our weekend trips for the 2019/2020 WINTER Quarter (December 1 – February 29).
We will send you an email a week before your trip with all the details and how to prepare/pack. Also please note that winter conditions can cause a trip to cancel. If this happens we will re-schedule.
Shining Rock Traverse Backpacking Adventure: Jan 11 & 12
We’re taking a really cool route up into the beauty of Shining Rock through some of the most beautiful settings imaginable – waterfalls, rushing winter rivers and then epic views from up high. As a winter camping trip we’ll be working on our systems to be warm, dry and comfortable
Caving and climbing experience: Feb 8 & 9
Older group chose to head into the cave and then on the way home swing by the climbing gym. Goal is to climb and work on rappels and some vertical rescue skills.
Older Girls Group
Indoor Climbing Experience – Jan 25 & 26
The Girls love climbing at the TAASC gym in Morganton. It’s dry and warm and perfect for a winter weekend trip. If the weather is good, we’ll do a short hiking adventure before we get there. There’s also the the amazing Beanstalk playground to get outside for a climbing break. We spend the night at the gym so are warm and safe!
Cave Adventure Day Trip – Feb 15
The Girls will join with the Younger girls on this fun trip. Our annual pilgrimage to the cave. There’s so many places to explore in there that it’s always a real adventure going underground! One of our most popular trips.
Younger Boys Group
Indoor climbing trip – Jan 18 & 19
Younger boys will spend the weekend climbing their hearts out! We’ll also do some vertical rescue skills with the group. On the way out there we may do an exciting side adventure up Hawksbill via the secret way.
Caving day trip: Feb 22
The boys group have been exploring the cave for several years now, so this year we’ll look at some new areas to check out. This is a really fun and popular experience for these kids.
Younger Girls Group
Caving Day Trip – Feb 15th
The Younger Girls will join with the older girls on this fun trip. It’s a classic winter trip for us as it get’s us ‘indoors’ out of the cold, wet conditions that could be occurring outdoors!
