    Looks like a great idea. Are older hikers welcome? Say 63 yrs old?

      Hi Chris, absolutely - you'll be chaperoning young adults many who've never been outdoors or on a hike in their life. At the meeting you'll meet the ICO chair as well as leaders of different agencies - basically what we call schools working with ICO. They usually need a few volunteers on their trips throughout the school year and will advise on the types of trips they're planning at the meeting.

      Hi Kim, no worries - if you're interested you could always contact Katie (her contact info. is in the event description) or come to a future event. They are usually held quarterly. Personally I really enjoy these trips; I even got to go to Vermont and try snowboarding for the first time. It was a lot of work but extremely rewarding. I highly recommend it!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
