Outing Club 2012-2013

See http://www.outingclubfall2012.eventbrite.com to register!!! 


Friends School Outing Club welcomes children from 3rd grade on to participate in outdoor adventures with Nicole, parents and families.  (Younger siblings may join in with a parent, and families from FSP are invited to join the spring camping trip as well.)

Parent Volunteers are vital to the fun and success of OC!  Please come to activities and on trips whenever possible!

2012-2013 highlights: most activities will take place on Wednesdays (typically 1x a month) - Rock Climbing happens on Fridays; participation in the Harvest Dinner fundraiser is required of all members; 3 trips will be offered.  Parents are again welcome to suggest additional hikes and activities! 

The fee for outing club membership is $125.00, however no student will be turned away because of finances - please talk with Nicole to make alternative arrangements.  Siblings may join in activities at a cost of $10.00 per activity - adult costs for trips yet to be determined.  Payment may be made online (there will be a service fee) or at the 9/12 orientation meeting - cash or checks made out to Lise Wagner (treasurer of Outing Club).  Payment MUST be made by the Harvest Dinner (10/26) for a child to be considered an outing club member.

All activities must be signed up for online - even if a child is a member.  Sign-ups are 1st come/ 1st served for van transportation - if the activity is full parents may arrange for carpooling or may accompany their child on any activity!
