YOUR WEEKEND

There's no better way to kick off summer than by running off to the woods with a whole bunch of new best buds! Join Salomon, Arc'teryx, Suunto, Campmor, the Appalachian Mountain Club, and us - Discover Outdoors - for a weekend chock full of all of your favorite outdoor activities. Hit the trails for a hike or go for a paddle on the lake. Head out for an afternoon of technical instruction or just hang out at camp and relax with some lawn games. There's no shortage of new things to try and new skills to learn from our team of experts. At night, enjoy music and entertainment around the campfire before heading off to your Big Agnes tent or your cozy bunk in your cabin.

From food to lodging to transportation, we've got all the details covered. It's time to play!
