LightHouse Community Winter Trip with ETC
Friday, January 18th through Sunday, January 20th

Each year, LightHouse partners with our friends from Environmental Travel Companions (ETC) for their always awesome overnight White Water Rafting and Sea Kayaking excursions. In 2019 LightHouse is excited to announce that we will be adding one more of ETC’s epic adventures to our calendar. In January the LightHouse Community Services team invites all students ages 14 and up that are blind or have low vision to join us for our first ETC winter trip during the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend. Our adventure will take us to the Sierra Nevada where we will meet our friends from ETC at their winter cabin in Arnold. The weekend will consist of all-day cross country skiing Saturday and a hike through the world's largest giant sequoias Sunday, before we return to the Bay Area on Sunday afternoon. Our trip will be led by the always fantastic ETC guides who will introduce you to basic skiing techniques and work with you at your skill level to challenge you while experiencing the fun and magic of ETC's winter trips.
