Preparing For Your Adventure

We hope the information we have provided in this section will answer most of your questions. For related information, visit the pages listed under Preparing... on the left side of this page.

Please pay particular attention to the items on the equipment lists; some are essential, especially during cold weather conditions.

Program participants are expected to drive to and from climbing or skiing sites. If this is not possible for you, please inform us and we will make other arrangements.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us. It is in everyone's best interest for you to be well-prepared for your program.

Lunch Menus
Our lunch menus change from time to time so it’s difficult to tell you exactly what to expect. The lists below include some of our more popular items. The daily fare is chosen by the chef each morning. If there are foods you cannot eat please let us know and we will try to avoid serving them to you.

Summer Fare: Turkey Club Sandwiches, Ham and Cheese Sandwiches, Chicken Salad Pita Pockets and Spinach Pie are some of our favorites. Vegetable Sticks, Nachos and other goodies also find their way into the lunch boxes. Desserts include fruit and assorted brownies, muffins and cookies.

Winter Fare: Each morning we fill thermos containers with piping hot lunches. Stews, Chowders, Chili and Hearty Soups are always welcome on a cold winter day. Desserts include cookies, brownies, zucchini bread, and muffins. A cup of hot herbal tea rounds out the lunch.
