Outdoor Adventure Trip
Battenkill Conservancy will be running its popular Outdoor Adventure Trip thanks in part to a generous grant from Stewart’s Shops Holiday Match Program. The overnight adventure trip, known as OAT, offers a water-focused, outdoor environmental science-based program geared for middle school students for four fun-filled days from August 8 to 11. Randy Jennings will lead the group (limited to 15 participants) along with guest instructors in canoeing, water safety, nature photography, botany, water sampling and fly fishing. Bonfires, night sky identification and crafts make up the evening activities. Battenkill Valley Outdoors in Cambridge, N.Y., serves as home base. Good physical health and solid swimming ability is required to participate. The $225 program fees is supported by Stewart’s Shops Holiday Match Program and includes all equipment, food and instruction. Interested candidates should email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot. More information on the program can be found at battenkillconservancy.org.
