The summer heat is long gone, but Outdoor Adventures has ways to keep the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune community active during the cold weather months.
While working to help individuals grow physically, mentally and spiritually, the Marine Corps Community Services program provides family-friendly opportunities for the community to gather and enjoy themselves.
“We’ve offered 79 programs to the community this past year,” said Marybeth LeMaire, recreational specialist for Outdoor Adventures and the Gottschalk Marina aboard base. “Our plan is to open people’s eyes to things available to them. There’s always time to get out and find things to do.”
Outdoor Adventures has offered various programs and activities including haunted kayaking, children’s archery, fishing tours and more.
Employees with Outdoor Adventures hope to provide fun activities for the military community while teaching valuable lessons of physical fitness and safety.
“Because of the upcoming winter months, we’re offering more outdoor cooking and campout programs,” said LeMaire. “I’m excited to see how they go and I’m excited to see people there.”
Winter programs are slated to include mountain biking, family cookouts, campouts and meteor watches.
Along with the programs, Outdoor Adventures offers patrons access to various fishing, biking and camping locations to military card holder patrons.
“Outdoor Adventures is a great way for people to get out with their families,” said Becky Haga, a Semper Fit instructor with Marine Corps Community Services.
