Intro to Outdoor Washington

Joey Pauley

This project week is five consecutive "day trips" for our younger students. Each day the group will try a new activity and new location. Trips include hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking. We will teach the skills and safety aspects of each activity so no experience is required. Each day will be a chance to explore a new activity but due to changes in weather be prepared to change the schedule around so the activity better fits the weather. This schedule is tentative and could change.

  • Monday -- Hiking at Little Si
  • Tuesday -- Rock climbing on Overlake's climbing wall and outdoor Olympics
  • Wednesday -- Biking on the Snoqualmie River trail
  • Thursday -- Stand Up Paddle
  • Friday -- Challenge Course.
Special Considerations

Students should be comfortable with hiking, or biking for the better part of the day. Have a good attitude when faced with difficult and challenging environments.

Participants must be willing to follow COVID guidelines.  If a participant, experiences any overlapping CDC symptoms of COVID during the project, the student will be isolated, and the student’s family will be required to pick up at their current location.  The family will bear all the costs associated with student pick-up. CDC's possible symptoms of COVID can be found here.

By selecting the above project(s,) you and your family are accepting the financial responsibility for the cost of the projects.  This includes any unrecoverable expenses incurred if Overlake, or any federal, state or local government forces cancelation of the project, or if you or your family decide not to attend, or your student becomes symptomatic and has to be isolated.
