The Mini-Trips Have Begun!

Excitement was in the air as everyone gathered at the trip center bright and early yesterday morning to begin their mini-trips! After a final gear check and a quick breakfast everyone headed out into the woods to start their adventures. The Adirondack Canoeing, Adirondack Backpacking, and Climbing mini-trips will be returning on Wednesday, 7/11 and the the Catskill Backpacking and Merrell Pavilion Hike will return on Tuesday, 7/10. We can’t wait to hear about the meaningful experiences they have and the incredible stories they will share when they return! Here are photos of the groups before leaving yesterday morning:
