Re size trail more

 

CorpsTHAT is partnering with the South East Conservation Corps to establish their inaugural American Sign Language (ASL) Youth Crews in 2019. We will be participating in the Patapsco Trail Fest on September 15-16th to fundraise for the crews. Join our CorpsTHAT team as a runner, mountain biker, or hiker and celebrate the beautiful views in Patapsco Valley State Park while supporting job opportunities for Deaf youths and adults.

To join our team, donate, or find out more details about our event, click here. You can also support the building of our ASL crew program by purchasing a “Trail MORE” shirt.

Another Orienteering Event – TBA

Our first orienteering session was a huge success, so we will be doing another one in the next couple months! This time, it won’t be a Beginner’s event but a Classic (Regular) event. Please fill out this poll to help us determine which session works best for everyone.

Didn’t attend our first orienteering session and have no idea what orienteering is? Don’t worry — you can still come to the Classic sessions! There will be instruction in the beginning (just ask for it at the registration table), and then it’s hands-on practice on an actual course.

last obstacle to completing their orienteering course!
