Summer Members Day - June 30th - 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM at North Park Boathouse
We celebrate you, our members, who make our mission come alive! For the festivities this year, we return to North Park Boathouse for its first full season since 2009. In addition to kayaking around the beautiful newly-renovated lake, you can scale our portable climbing wall, bike ride, fish, and join in our creative family activities; all while enjoying the great company of your fellow Venture Outdoors Members.
This annual member appreciation event is free of charge and open to all active Venture Outdoors members. We encourage you to bring your favorite picnic dish (side dish or dessert) to share, but we'll take care of the grilling (vegetarian options will be available).
We look forward to seeing you there! Please Register here for Summer Members Day.
