Spring 2012

In Spring Quarter 2012, we ran three 3-day/2-night backpacking trips to Big Basin State Park and Henry Coe State Park. Group sizes were less than 15 and sweet times were had. More details and pictures to come.

Winter 2012

In Winter Quarter 2012, we ran 3 trips to Natural Bridges State Bridge in Santa Cruz and 1 joint trip to the Stanford Climbing Wall and Stanford's own Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve. Each trip took a different grade level of students from East Palo Alto Academy and all were a blast! Pictures are below.
