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 do team-building activities and spend the afternoon outside on Casco Bay modeling an Outing Club trip with trained SUP and/or kayak instructors.
Teens To Trails is calling all Outing Club students to be a part of the 3rd Annual Life Happens Outside Festival. As a part of the weekend, Teens To Trails has rented campground spaces at Wolfe's Neck Oceanfront Campground for a weekend camping experience!
