TRACKS was started in the spring of 2007 amid growing concern and research identifying a "nature deficit" within society. Since its inception, TRACKS has effectively infused many Bellevue programs and activities with its six key standards:
Snowshoe Adventure Introduction Series- Leaves from: Highland Community Center, 14224 Bel-Red Road. Never been snowshoeing? This is the perfect opportunity for you to explore the white wilderness around us. Learn the basics from our expert staff, who will ensure the trip is safe and fun for everyone. Transportation and snowshoes will be provided! Learn new skills and meet new friends while enjoying the great outdoors. You won't find a bigger adventure on a snowy day!
Teen Snowshoe: Mid-Winter Break Trips
High Adventure Spring Break Camp Meets at: Highland Community Center, 14224 Bel-Red Road. Join our expert guides for three action-packed days of outdoor fun. We will spend each day in a different location, developing new skills and exploring fresh terrain, be it snowshoeing in the Cascades or rock climbing in the city.
