This half day trail party is open to community members and folks who are signed up and planning to attend the TKO Leadership Summit. We are planning to work a short day maintaining the Great Dune Trail. This trail is the local tsunami evacuation route for the small surrounding community, as well as a hiking trail for visitors and participants of Outdoor School at Camp Magruder. This event is not a requirement for attending the leadership summit, but is a great way to be a part of giving back to Camp Magruder in thanks for hosting the TKO Leadership Summit.

  • Sturdy boots – please bring sturdy boots that will protect your toes from sharp tools. For safety reasons, we cannot allow tennis shoes, sandals etc. during the trail work sessions.
  • Long sleeved shirt and work pants – wear what you won’t mind getting dirty in
  • Rain gear and warm layers – it will be February on the coast, please come prepared for all weather.
  • Work gloves – we will have loaner pairs available
  • Water bottle – 2L minimum highly recommended
  • A sack lunch and snacks
