Programs

JULY 2021 - These are examples of years past. It will be updated as we start to build programs for the Spring and before registration opens

 

 

This list is constantly updating as confirmations come in. When registration opens , we will have all pending programs listed as well, with an indication that we are awaiting confirmation. 

We try our best to match you up with as many programs as you pick. The more you pick, the better your chances are. Also, it is advised that if you chose to opt out of a specific program on the registration, that is only because you have done that activity before. All programs are subject to availability.  Sometimes programs are cancelled beyond circumstances in our control. 

You will not receive more than one "challenge program". You will also have one program that falls under Service. 

Please note: Program titles are not always the best descriptors. While often it may sound like a typical program, sometimes we have found program leaders that are amazing and have new twists. This is basically a reminder to "not judge a book by it's cover". 

This is a great opportunity to get off the beaten path and try new things. It is very tempting to request things you have done before or "know" that you like, but some programs that seem off the beaten path have turned out to be our most successful activities.
