Gillette College kicks off new Outdoor Adventure Club

Gillette College launched its new Outdoor Adventure Club (OAC) two weeks ago with a 24-person trip to Meadowlark Ski Lodge. The club kept its momentum by welcoming Sheridan College’s OAC to the Energy Capital last week.

Several Sheridan College students and SC club advisor Julie Davidson made the trip to Gillette on Thursday, March 27, joining Gillette College students for a tour of campus, some rock climbing at the Campbell County Recreation Center and a bonfire.

Gillette College and Sheridan College make up the Northern Wyoming Community College District, with outreach centers in Buffalo and Kaycee.

“It was great for the students to do some cross-district networking,” said Davidson, the Director of Learn Outdoors for the NWCCD. “We are looking forward to some great interaction between the campuses. It was a successful outset for Gillette College’s Outdoor Adventure Club.”

Gillette College police lieutenant Chad Trebby is the club advisor for GC’s Outdoor Adventure Club, with student Nicole Long serving as the president.

“Being located in northern Wyoming, the college district recognizes the importance of incorporating the outdoors into the educational experience,” Trebby said. “We’ve had a ton of success getting the ball rolling with our first couple big events. We are looking forward to exploring more opportunities and activities this spring and summer.”

Trebby said more rock climbing beckons when the weather warms up. For more information on Gillette College’s Outdoor Adventure Club, email Trebby at ctrebby  @ sheridan.edu.
