Over the past few weeks, the RISING Students team has been sitting down to ask themselves the question, “What will make this Summer (COVID and all) the most memorable Summer possible?”. We decided that when memorable Summers come to mind, it really boils down to three things:
2) With Your Best Friends…
3) Doing New and Exciting Things!
That’s why we decided on WILD WEDNESDAY’S! Every week we’re around this Summer we’ll be taking ALTAER and RISING College on an outdoor adventure somewhere in North Georgia. Hiking, Swimming, Tubing, Exploring; we want all the adventure! These will be low-structure, low-cost outings that will also strike a balance in between extreme fun and mild-to-moderate physical strenuousness in order to make these outings as approachable and inclusive as possible, regardless of outdoors experience/physical capability. Our RISING Students team just so happens to be thoroughly experienced and competent across a broad range of outdoor skills and proficiencies and will be prepared to make sure SAFE fun is a top priority.
Speaking of safety, please make sure you have your student’s 2020 medical release form filled out and up to date!
Weekly details will be sent out on Instagram, as well as the ALTAER and RISING College GroupMe channels, so be on the lookout!
