Adventures

All adventures and activities are initiated and organized by individual members with no claim of expertise. GLAC itself does not designate, approve, organize, or coordinate any official club events.

ONGOING ACTIVITIES

Hikes
Various club members arrange hikes on Friday afternoons. Many hiking trails around the greater Kalamazoo area are explored on these excursions with specific locations to be announced on the forum. Keep your eye on the forum.

Indoor Rock Climbing
We will be climbing at Climb Kalamazoo on Tuesday or Wednesday evenings through the Winter; watch the Forum for dates. We will start climbing at 6:30 p.m. Arrive at 6:00 if you need a belay & safety lesson from the staff.

IMPROMPTU ACTIVITIES

Any club member may lead hikes, paddles, bike rides or other activities at any time.  These activities will be announced via the GLAC forum
