Outing Club Leadership Conference

Join Teens To Trails in kicking off the school year with a full-day Conference for Outing Club advisors and student leaders. The Conference will focus on planning trips for the year ahead and learning about ways Teens To Trails can support your club. It’s a great way to connect with other students and advisors, share resources, discuss obstacles and set goals. We will also hear from an inspiring outdoor keynote speaker, do team-building activities and spend the afternoon outside on Casco Bay modeling an Outing Club trip with trained SUP and/or kayak instructors.

All advisors, aspiring advisors, interested administrators and student leaders are invited to join!

High School Outing Clubs do much more than get students to appreciate the outdoors. They also bring together students from a wide variety of ages and regular social groups to learn to work and have fun together. Every time I ask a student about an recent Outing Club trip, they always have a smile and a great story!
