GO-Club - Adventures for Individuals

GO-Club Adventures for Individuals - https://www.go-adventures.com/adventure-instruction/go-club-adventure-for-individuals/

One of the best things about adventure sports is that no matter how old you are, or how much experience you have, it is relatively easy to go out and try a new adventure activity. And, like most experiences, adventures are better (and safer) when done with friends.

But what happens when you can’t find someone to share the adventure with?

Joining a GO Club outing with GO-Adventures gives you expert instruction, and some new friends to try it with!

We’ll pair individuals together into a single group, and once we have enough people to meet the 4 or 6 participant minimum (depending on the trip), the adventure is on!
