Weekend Trips

Our talented and experienced staff plan short, fun-filled excursions to local areas such as the Des Moines River, Blue Mounds & Sugar Bottom. Try canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, mountain biking, and hiking with our staff. These trips give you an opportunity to meet new people, relax and improve your outdoor skills.
