Below is a quick summary of our weekend adventure trips for the Winter Quarter (Dec 1 – Feb 28).
We will send you an email a week before your trip with all the details and how to prepare/pack. Also please note that weather conditions can cause a trip to cancel. If this happens we will re-schedule.
COVID Protocol – Please be familiar with our Covid-19 Protocol as it applies to these trips.
We will not be running any overnight trips due to Covid. Instead we’ll be offering day trip experiences. (Except for the Older teen group)
Winter Quarter Adventure Trips
All TAASC Members
December 20th: TAASC Zipathon at the Beanstalk Zipline (Catawba Meadows in Morganton). We’re going for a zipline record of 26.2 miles (a marathon!) and need as many of you to come help zip some laps to make it happen. This is a FREE event. You’ll need to provide your own transport as you may want to leave early or arrive later. Parents and siblings are also welcome to join in.
January 22nd: Climbing at Morganton TAASC climbing gym. The girls will continue to develop their climbing skills and stay out of the cold. Besides keeping everyone’s belay skills sharp, there’s opportunity to learn how to rappel and develop more overall climbing skills.
February 27th: Caving adventure in Worleys cave. This is a perennial favourite trip for all our students. We missed going last year, so this year will be a blast exploring around the various passages and having fun underground. We’re going on a Sunday as it’s less busy than Saturdays.
December 11th: Caving Adventure in Worleys. As mentioned above this is a fantastic adventure to be part of. The girls will love exploring as a group through the cave. We may need a couple of parents to come to help with transport.
February 12th: Indoor climbing at the TAASC climbing gym in Morganton. The Oaks girls will get plenty of opportunities to practice belaying, climbing and ascending ropes. All things vertical is the theme!
January 15th: Mystery Adventure day! The girls will base out of Ann’s house, which is situated right off the parkway and near the folk art center. The Saplings will go out for mini explorations and return to hot chocolate and warming up before the next activity begins. Ann will create a magical experience for these young ladies!
February 19th: Caving daytrip to Worleys. The Saplings will have an age appropriate experience in the cave. This age group is so fun to cave with as they notice and explore every single cool thing they find. The cave is one giant wonderland for them and will help to develop their skills for future more advanced adventures.
January 29th – Indoor climbing at the Morganton TAASC climbing gym. This is one of the boys’ most favourite trips. They love coming here to crank it out and have an exciting and engaging day. Everyone will get some solid belaying instruction as well as a chance to climb as much as they want.
February 20th – Caving day trip! As you can imagine this is one of the best experiences for these guys! They love it so much and learn a lot about group travel, staying safe and found and overall feeling like hardcore explorers!
Older Teen Group
January 15th: Indoor climbing trip. We may go to Morganton TAASC climbing gym or another venue like the Riverter. The goal at the TAASC gym would be to run a vertical rescue scenario using a litter. This is an awesome initiative for the group to set up all the technical pieces and successfully deliver the patient to the ground.
February 13th: Caving exploration day trip. This will be a more advanced trip than what the other groups do as this age group can go deeper and further into the cave, exploring exciting passages. The group will get to plan this adventure and what they’d like to specifically achieve.
