What we're about
What is Adventuring?
Adventuring is the outdoor club for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans-gender, and Queer community in the Washington DC area.
Our volunteers lead hikes year-round, and in the warmer months we do recreational bike rides too, some shorter and others longer. That's not everything though.
Camping, backpacking, and canoeing are examples of some of the other things we do when we have volunteers to lead them. We're all about enjoying the outdoors and being physically active.
Not sure whether an activity will be too easy or hard for you? Contact the trip leader to talk about it or come to our annual Spring or Fall Socials, our Summer Picnic, or our Holiday Party to get to know us better.
Encourage the development of opportunities for outdoor recreational activities primarily for the gay, lesbian, bisexual trans-gender, and queer community.
Educate gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans-gender, and queer people in the skills needed to participate in outdoor activities.
Educate the general public by correcting negative stereotypes of gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans-gender and Queer behavior.
Provide gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans-gender, and queer people with a more accepting and supportive alternative to existing traditional outdoor groups.
We're an all-volunteer, not-for-profit club.
You and your friends may attend one or many events without paying annual dues. Instead, Adventuring Members pay-as-you-go.
And although we are an LGBTQ group, we put no restrictions on who may participate, apart from requesting that you be fit or experienced enough to complete the activity.
In other words, your straight brother and your elderly (but spry) aunt and your friend from out-of-town are all welcome on our trips, provided they realize most participants will be gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans-gender, or queer.
