Now that it is officially summer (because school is out in Douglas County!), we are starting this year's summer season of Umpqua Explorers! This year we will be traveling across the county to go on one, two and three night backpacking trips. Our trips usually leave on a Monday of each week, so we will be gone the beginning of the week, but we will also have some adventure days on Fridays to float the river, go on a day hike, get some icecream, or some other fun activity! Explorers will also have the opportunity to help with our farmer's market booth, and maybe even make some crafts to sell there! This summer our explorer program will be June through July and we will be accepting applicants between the ages of 12 - 17. If you are interested in joining explorers you'll need to fill out an application, either come for our informational meeting/first overnight on Monday, June 20th, at 1 pm, to fill one out or contact us to fill one out before our first overnight! We look forward to meeting you!
