Outing Club

Friends School's Outing Club welcomes children from 5th-8th grade on to participate in outdoor adventures with 3-4 teacher Nicole, and 1-2 teacher Aliza.  The annual membership for Outing Club is $145 per student. This year the group size is limited to 14 students so that we can use the FSP bus instead of relying on parent drivers. Siblings may join at a cost of $15 per activity if space allows, or with a parent driver for no charge (unless additional costs are required for the activity).

Questions? Contact Nicole (nicole@friendsschoolofportland.org) or Jen in the main office (jen@friendsschoolofportland.org).
