2023 Spring Quarter Adventure Trips
March 26th: Bouldering at Rumbling Bald. Just down the road near Lake Lure, the Redwoods will enjoy exploring and bouldering in this unique spot. It’s fun to find a bouldering challenge that you have to work at to succeed. Girls will help support and encourage each other.
April 15 & 16: Overnight backpacking trip. This is a great trip to prepare for the upcoming summer trip and is required if you’re coming this summer. Girls will get to test their various systems – backpack, sleeping system, camp-craft and enjoy a fun weekend together in a beautiful area.
March 19th: Hawksbill Adventure day hike. This is one of the most amazing places in WNC! Hawksbill has incredible 360 views and you can see Linville Gorge, Table Rock and Grandfather Mountain. The instructors have some fun plans for this trip involving hot chocolate and hammocks! Sounds like a fun day to be out together as a group.
May 7th: With the warmer weather of May, we’ve planned a really fun day hike to Cove Creek falls. Playing around in the water; fun run around games in the field; map and compass practice, plus exploring up the Caney Bottom trail. Another great day for these Oak ladies!
April 15th: Richmond Park Adventure. This is a great spot for the Saplings to learn how to navigate and use maps and compasses on an actual trip! They will learn all about these tools and then use them to navigate a pre-set course. There will be lots of fun and games included as well. It’s a good opportunity for these girls to work together and help support their team!
May 13th: Climbing at Cove Creek. This is the perfect venue for rock climbing for this age group. There will also be opportunities to explore up to the big waterfall, play games in the open field as well as swim in the creek! Overall a great day out in the woods.
Boys Foxes and Wolves Groups
The Boys Wolves & Foxes Weekend trips are combined for both groups.
April 22 & 23 – Backpacking weekend trip. This is a great shake down trip to prepare for our fun summer trip. The boys will get to practice all their camp craft skills as well as overall gear organization and develop systems to be efficient and safe in the outdoors. These backpacking trips are the best teachers for skill development.
May 6th – Adventure day trip: We’re going up to Mount Mitchell to search for the plane that crashed up there many, many years ago. This will be a fun day hike including bagging a couple of 6000ft peaks, and the plane!
Older Teen Group (Dogwoods)
March 18th: Day adventure followed by Banff Film Festival.
April 29 – 30th: Backpacking weekend. We have changed this trip to a regular backpacking weekend trip. These trips are the best for being outdoors for a prolonged period and being together with the group! The goal is to enjoy our time out while travelling through beautiful areas and dusting off our campcraft skills. All skill levels will be successful on this trip.
OPEN TO ALL GROUPS SERVICE PROJECT
March 25: Annual Table Rock road cleanup. This is one of our main service projects we complete each year. This old road goes up to the TR picnic area and provides access to the Linville gorge and all the amazing climbing at Table Rock. Without us doing this each year, the road would wash away. Please join in to help make it happen – it’s a tuition free trip!
