Fall Outing Club Rendezvous
Our T3 Outing Club Rendezvous events bring high school Outing Clubs from across Maine together for a weekend outdoors. During these gatherings, newer Clubs have the opportunity to camp & cook alongside more experienced outdoor leaders, fostering a sense of community among Maine Outing Clubs while each builds upon their own outdoor skills & confidence levels. We believe that this intermingling of schools strengthens the sustainability of Outing Clubs overall. These fall Rendezvous weekends have proven to be a great way for Outing Clubs to jumpstart their school year and get teens excited to plan more outdoor adventures throughout the coming year.
We are very excited to be working with Acadia National Park and our friends at Acadia Mountain Guides...
