Parents love the great outdoors just as much as you? You’re in luck: the Middlebury Mountain Club is hosting some awesome activities for you and your familia, and everyone’s welcome to join in on any and all. Check out the schedule below (submitted by the MMC), and be sure to get outside and take advantage of what could be one of the last not-completely-freezing fall weekends.
Saturday, October 25th 2-5pm Brooker Patio
Pumpkins, cheese, cider donuts, apples, cider, love and happiness. These are all things you will find this weekend at our annual Pumpkin Tumble. Bring your friends, family, dogs (no, but seriously) and smiling faces to listen to live music, eat delicious food, perhaps compete in the apple pie contest, and simply enjoy the fall spirit. Sign up for the Apple Pie Contest here. If you’re interested in volunteering (think cutting massive amounts of cheese and apples) email Robin Loewald at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Camel’s Hump at Sunrise with Lucy, Hye-Jin!
Friday-Saturday, October 24-25
Don’t miss the last chance to scope out some fall foliage on the top of one of Vermont’s most famous peaks! We’ll leave ADK circle at 1 PM on Friday and hike a couple miles to where we’ll stay the night. Getting up a wee bit early the next morning, we’ll summit Camel’s Hump in time to soak up the sunrise. Expect to be back on campus for dinner on Saturday. Total trip is approx. 5.5 miles, but get stoked for some elevation (a little under 3000 ft). YAY!!! Come play in the mountains with us! Sign up here!
Adirondack Hike Sampler with Katie and Jake!
Saturday-Sunday, October 25-26
Come explore the Adirondack fire towers with us! We’ll be leaving at 8 am on Saturday, October 25 and doing three different day hikes in the Adirondacks on this overnight trip. Saturday we’ll visit Goodnow and Vanderwhacker fire towers before camping out, and then on Sunday morning we’ll hike to OK Slip Falls before returning to Middlebury in the afternoon. We’ll get the best of both worlds: lots of time hiking, but without heavy packs. Each day hike is about 5 miles long so be excited to cover some ground and see some beautiful places! Sign up here!
