In our first fall we offered afternoon hiking and mountain biking trips, as well as two overnight camping trips. We hope to get out skating, skiing, and to indoor rock climbing gyms this winter, with another two spring overnights in the works. We have had 20 students on each overnight, and our afternoon trips drew about 10 students each, and those numbers will likely increase as we build up our gear library to give all kids access to quality biking, skiing, and camping equipment.
Renting trailers of XC skis, vans for transportation, and camping equipment all come with a cost. Some of these costs can be eased if we get to the point that we own equipment rather than rent it each time. Funds raised through this and all M.O.C. events will go towards necessary equipment for students new to camping and outdoor sports, and will also help us float students who may not be able to pay the $5-$20 cost to go along on some of our off-campus trips.
A donation of $10-$20 would allow a couple students who couldn't otherwise pay for an afternoon or overnight trip to come along. A donation of $25-$50 would allow us to purchase quality used or new gear like sleeping pads/bags. Donations of $50-$100 would allow us to build up a set of tents, bikes/helmets, skis, or go towards renting a van, reserving time at a climbing gym or skate rink for some fun off-campus adventures.
