What a weekend, readers. It was one for the books! Late nights at Applebee’s and a Vanderprov show, but the highlight of my weekend was my Friday night. That was the first official gathering of the year for the Outdoor Adventure Club!
If you haven’t heard of it already, Outdoor Adventure Club is a club whose “goal is to provide Hope College students with an opportunity to participate in various outdoor activities in a manner that is environmentally responsible. We wish to expose students to local activities through outings and service opportunities.” That is the mission statement on their website, and they definitely stuck to it on Friday. Lets go through the rundown of the night.
After we checked in at the flagpole, we got on the bus and rode to Saugatuck Dunes State Park where we walked out the the beach before dinner.
After we saw the beach, we ate dinner, which consisted of hotdogs, coleslaw, pickles and s’mores – the perfect outdoor picnic food! Then we played some outdoor games: Frisbee, cards, outdoor stuff ya know? Then my favorite part of the trip happened before we left: we hiked back out to the beach to see the dregs of the sunset. Here it is!
Going with the Outdoor Adventure Club was a great way to get out in nature with other Hope Students who love the outdoors too! If you’re interested in becoming a part of the OAC and want to receive their emails, email them at OAC@hope.edu. They do tons of cool outdoorsy stuff and you won’t be disappointed!
Until next time, readers!
