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 leadership skills, planning trips for the year ahead and learning about ways Teens To Trails can support your club. This is a great opportunity to connect with other students and advisors, share resources, discuss obstacles and set goals. We will also do team-building activities and spend the afternoon on Casco Bay modeling an Outing Club trip with trained SUP and/or kayak instructors from LL Beans Outdoor Discovery Programs.


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

Registration is OPEN

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!
