May 31 - June 2
Outdoor Rock Climbing & Canoeing
You guys have asked for it and now it’s here – Outdoor Rock Climbing! This weekend will be full of high adventure – a day at the ledges, climbing and rappelling, then a day on the water canoeing.
Location: Barton Cove & Rose Ledges, Northfield, MA
Cost: Approximately $75
Our goal is to have 12 girls sign up for this trip. We have only 8-9 girls interested right now. I know there are more - who else wants to climb outdoors?
If you are interested and planning to attend either or both of these trips, contact Pam Brunell at 508-488-9060 or GSCWM.HighAdventure@gmail.com. She would like to get the contract signed with the vendor for Rock Climbing asap to secure the date.
Canoe Camping along the CT River
Let’s travel like Sacagawea. On this high adventure activity, we will begin with a water safety talk and then hit the river. Each day, we will paddle, 2 per canoe, down the river until we reach our back woods camp. This trip will require lots of planning so we need to start early!
Time to relax! Families are welcome as we camp at one of our beautiful state parks then hit the Deerfield for a day of tubing. There will be hiking, swimming, camping, Yoga, cooking and eating. Maybe we’ll try out one of those Chocolate Dutch Oven delights for desert!
August Trips are for Summer time fun!
Trip #1 High Adventure Water Sports! We’ll either go to the coast or head to New Hampshire for Indoor Surfing! We don’t have dates yet but watch for more information if you are interested in this water sport.
Trip #2 Take to the woods! We’ll plan a backpacking trip for a few days into the backcountry. Not sure where yet, but possibly the Berkshires along the AT, Southern Vermont on the Long Trail or the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
Welcome back to current members and welcome to new members with horseback riding and a family cookout. We’ll visit and ride at a horse farm, cook over an open fire and sleep under the stars as they did in the Wild West. Sunday, we’ll invite our families to a Chuck Wagon cookout.
Hike into the World of New England Fall Colors
Let’s hit the woods again backpacking. We’ll see the vibrant colors as only seen in New England. Depending on weather and conditions, we’ll go where the colors are best.
Orienteering Scavenger Hunt
Come test your skills with a map and compass! The day will start with instruction. After a map review and a trial run, everyone will scatter in teams using their maps, compass and clues to find the coordinates. Who knows what you might find. Prizes will be awarded!
Because we had so much success with the 2012 Camp Bonnie Brae Winter weekend, this will be an annual event. You’ll be able to cross-country ski, snowshoe or hike to your heart’s content – your choice on the specific sport you want to do. We’ll have fun, games and lots of good food.
