On the weekend of December 10th and 11th,  ten students and two teachers braved the winter weather to explore the wilds of Camden Hills State Park.  They camped at the park’s beautiful Ski Shelter which sits nearly at the center of the park.  They hiked Mt. Megunticook and Bald Rock Mountain, both of which are challenging hikes in the summer, but even tougher in winter conditions. 
Future trips for the Outdoor Club include a canoe trip this spring on the Medomak River and a weekend camping trip to Acadia National Park.
