Fall Two Backyard Adventures
Wilderness Photography Outing:
Friday , October 16 4:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Do you enjoy photography and think we have a beautiful campus? This BYA will teach you about the basics of how to take spectacular outdoor photographs! Join the leaders as they show you the best spots to catch the sunset and fall foliage on this afternoon BYA.
Outing: Sunday, October 25 10:00 a.m. – 2:00.p.m.
Use technology to go on an adventure! Geo-caching is a new sport developed by GPS users to show each other interesting and hard to find places around the world. Besides learning the in’s and out’s of geo-caching, you will also learn how to navigate with a GPS and a compass. What do you find in the cache? Treasure! However, the point of geo-caching is not the cache, but the journey. This journey will take you to some of the lesser-known areas in and around Hamilton.
Little Falls Community Climbing Day Outing:
Sunday, October 18 10:00 a.m. – 6:00.p.m.
Enjoy a fall day of rock climbing in Little Falls, NY. Located right beside Lock 17 of the Erie Canal, Moss Island offers both rock climbing and a look into the infrastructure of CNY. This BYA will teach you the basics of rock climbing, and you will have the opportunity to challenge yourself on the various rock climbs that your leaders will set up. There will be something for everyone!
Climbers under 18 are required to have a notarized waiver – this is required by the City of Little Falls
