Outdoor Adventure Alumni Reunion: Yosemite

Reconnect and share your love of Yosemite with fellow adventurers on this special summer reunion.
June 28, 2019 to June 30, 2019

Calling all Outdoor Adventure alums! You’re invited to a special reunion weekend in Yosemite. Head to higher ground for a Friday-evening campfire, where you can reconnect with old friends from the trail, and meet some new pals who share your love of Yosemite. Over the next two days, you’ll get to enjoy guided day hikes with our expert naturalists, an evening stargazing program, and plenty of time to relax and enjoy the solitude and scenery of Yosemite in early summer. We hope to see you there!

Please note: Location is TBD based on conditions. We'll keep the plan flexible so we can adjust the route if the Tioga Road opens or plan to explore the Crane Flat and Hetch Hetchy areas.

  • An evening program and two full days of exploring Yosemite.
  • Park entry (as needed).
  • Camping included, if needed; limited sites are shared among all the participants (reservation arrives Friday, June 28, through Monday, July 1) at a campground, to be determined. We cannot adjust these dates.
