Outing Club

Fox Islands Outing Club

Launched in the Fall of 2016 by NHCP, the Fox Islands Outing Club (FIOC) is a program open to community children and teenagers from the Fox Island communities. The goals of the program are:

  • Provide outdoor learning opportunities
  • Cultivate a sense of place
  • Support a safe environment to increase self confidence and promote leadership
  • Help develop personal and interpersonal skills
  • Foster future stewards of the land

Safety of participants is a priority of the program. This includes their physical and emotional well being. Program leaders will encourage participating kids to challenge themselves and seek adventure. For some this may mean hiking an extra ½ mile while for others it might mean a weekend of winter camping. In each instance, program leaders will stress preparation, teamwork and reliance on outdoor skills.

Amilia Campbell (certified EMT) and Maria Keeler (CPR trained) are the adult leaders and supervisors for the 2018-19 season. 

As NHCP gathers resources for the Fox Islands Outing Club, we intend on building an inventory of equipment, appropriate clothing and winter boots to lend to participants on an as needed basis. The right clothing and gear can make all the difference in a person’s enjoyment and safety in a variety of weather conditions.

Kids who sign up fall into one of the following four age groups and meet at noon on their given Friday at the North Haven Community School:

  • Grades K - 1
  • Grades 2 - 4
  • Grades 5 - 6
  • Grades 7 - 8
  • Grades 9 - 12

NHCP intends to partner with local organizations. The support of the community is vital to the continuation and sustainability of the program.
