The Covid-19 situation continues to evolve. Outdoor events have proven to be a safer choice when gathering. OutVentures is excited to be planning events in 2022! Please continue to check the website for new hikes, trips, potlucks, etc. Please note that any indoor OutVentures events require all attendees to be vaccinated. Similarly, testing and vaccination may be required at the trip leader's discretion. All OutVentures events will follow regulations required by local jurisdictions.
