What does this mean for Out Doors?
Our plan is to ease programs back by beginning with a series of half-day programs where you meet us on location. This means you will need to bring your own lunch, water, and appropriate clothing for the weather. The rest of the year will be filled with exciting programs all across Victoria. Please read the October- December Calendar for all the trip details and get in touch with us if you’d like to participate.
