ABOUT THE CLUB

OUTDOORS WITH JESUS  
Began in the Summer of 1986 as an informal Hiking club.   We will be celebrating our 31th year.   Outdoors with Jesus is not a singles group and not an outfitter; but a network of hikers among the Wasatch Front in Utah.    The club is open to single and married adults.  Children and teens may attend our easier activities if they are supervised.  Dogs are welcome on our Millcreek Canyon hikes and are not allowed in canyons with Watershed Restrictions.   

RATINGS:
NEWBIES ~ Easiest, great for beginners and KID friendly.
MODERATE ~ More challenging, at your own pace hiking.
INTERMEDIATE ~ Long, Steep hiking; not for kids.
DIFFICULT ~ Die Hard hikers.  No beginners allowed.  

CLUB FOCUS:  
"It's all about Jesus!"   
"In humility consider others as more important than yourselves."  Philippians 2:3 HCB    Please come will an attitude of Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness and Self Control.  

MEMBERSHIP:  
All adults attending need to sign a release/waiver.
Even though our membership is FREE, you are expected to provide your own gear, bring your own water, and dress appropriate for each outing.   And if you are carpooling long distances with someone please help them with gas.

MEETING:
Please arrive at the Meeting time so you can sign in, stretch and arrange carpooling.   If you arrive after we depart, try to meet us at the trailhead or catch us on the trail.   If the Hike Leader doesn't show up, don't spoil your day; go hiking anyway.   If you know you are a slow hiker, please plan to bring a friend with you who can stay with you at your own pace.
