In light of the global pandemic, we are cautiously proceeding, allowing only a small number of participants at each event. We will need your cooperation in only signing up for events you can truly commit to attending. If you miss out on registering please get yourself registered on the waitlist. We also ask for everyone's cooperation and patience as we all adjust! Please see our policy and safety practices here.
DEADLINE TO REGISTER: BY MIDNIGHT, 8 DAYS BEFORE THE EVENT (JULY 30).
PRE-TRIP MEETING (MANDATORY): FRIDAY, JULY 31 @ 6:30 PM (Location TBA - will be in Winnipeg)
Nutimik is a front-country campground in the heart of the Whiteshell. This will be our home base while we explore nearby hiking trails, lakes, and beaches. In addition, Friday and Saturday evening will include our popular Fireside Chats (informal yet structured and unique learning opportunity) and Sunday morning will include an optional early morning nature-inspired guided journaling walk. This trip will proceed rain or shine unless deemed unsafe; plans will be adjusted accordingly in the case of bad weather. Full details will be provided to registered attendees.
