|A Note from the Founder
Happy Spring! With great spring snow in the mountains and flowering trees here in the Bay, we are gearing up for an exciting, busy season here at BAWT. The BAWT office is buzzing with interns. Our organization is growing and it’s time to send all our friends an update. In this edition you’ll meet one of BAWTs all-star youth workers and first year recipient of BAWT’s Amy Chamberlain Memorial Scholarship. You’ll also find news about upcoming BAWT courses and events, find stories and pictures of kids on recent BAWT trips, and even learn a trick or two to keep yourself safe and dry in the backcountry! We hope this newsletter provides you with both valuable tips and, even more importantly, inspiration to get outdoors. Happy reading!
Aaron now works as the Outdoor Challenge Program Coordinator for St. John’s Educational Threshold in the Mission district of San Francisco. He heads up their Youth Outdoor Challenge Program, where he plans and implements outdoor trips for high school youth in the Bay Area.

The Rob Hill Campground renovation is underway. The project includes expanding the site from 2 to 4 campground sites, adding a wind-proof educational pavilion and additional campfire ring in each site, and remodeling the restroom. This project should be completed by early 2009. In the meantime, Dragonfly Creek campground is the temporary site offered to CAP groups. It has a secluded private space surrounded by a eucalyptus grove. Dragonfly Creek is a short, scenic walk from Rob Hill, our gear pick-up site, and major trails.
Spring Training was March 8th-9th. Sign up here for the fall session, which will take place October 4th-5th.
