Adventure Crew’s mission is to connect city teens to nature and each other through engaging outdoor adventures. Through Adventure Crew, city teens develop the courageous spirit to step out of their comfort zone and discover new worlds - outside in nature, and inside themselves. This deep connection to nature will change the course of their lives, no matter what environment they’re in. Students who join The Crew will be able to attend a FREE and exciting adventure once every month with other CPS, Cincinnati, and Northern Kentucky students. Breakfast, lunch, and transportation from Fountain Square are always provided! Some previous adventures that our students have participated in include kayaking, mountain biking, skiing/snowboarding, rock climbing, and much more!
Withrow students who are interested in joining Adventure Crew can reach out to Mr. Voet.
