The Monmouth Outdoors Club has planned a number of events for the spring 2017 semester. Events include camping trips, indoor on-campus activities and outdoor activities as well.
Due to the winter weather, the club will be hosting a monthly Game Night on campus. The first Game Night event will be held on Friday, Feb. 17 at 8 p.m. in the Rebecca Stafford Student Center.
Hot beverages and an assortment of snacks will be sold. At Game Night students are welcome to come play various board games. Game Nights are also scheduled on Mar. 3 and April 7.
The club’s main trip this semester is a tubing trip to Blue Mountain, Premier Pocono Mountain Resort on Sunday, Feb. 19. Those registered will travel to the resort to snow tube on single partner, and family-sized tubes.
Senior social work student and Secretary of the Outdoors Club, Erin Noone believes that these trips are a once in a lifetime experience and that they are a great way to get outdoors and enjoy the company of others. “The Outdoors Club accepts everyone whether they’ve never been camping or stepped foot outside. I think that is why the trips are so much fun. The diversity in the types of trips is also really appealing because there is something for everyone. We really tried to accomplish that this semester,” said Noone.
Other activities and trips planned throughout the semester include a Skyzone event, where students will be able to jump on giant trampolines and dive into a foam pit. The club has also organized group trips this semester to go rock climbing, and climb a rope course.
With warmer weather on the way, the club also plans camping and hiking trips to various parks, as well as picnics and a Beach Bash, where students will be able to play games and eat on the beach. Details will be announced as the events become closer.
Adjunct Professor and faculty advisor to the Outdoors Club, William Reynolds said, “The club is really dedicated to everything adventurous and fun and are ready for anything. The club has been around for 11 years and it stronger, bigger, and better than ever.”
Outdoors Club also accepts new ideas for events and is always willing to try new things. The club encourages as much involvement as possible, and meetings are every Wednesday during the scheduled club meeting time and are open to everyone.
Club President and seniorbusiness administration student, Joseph Grembowiec said, “From whitewater rafting to cabin camping in the forest, we do everything outdoors with a strong sense of leadership, teamwork, adventure and enthusiasm. People should always feel free to join our wonderful, cost-effective events because here at the Outdoors Club, everyone is family.”
Also, T-shirts are being sold for $5 during the scheduled meeting time.
