Before you read on, I challenge you to take a minute and count how many clubs you know at Sherwood.
Got a number?
Well I’ll bet it wasn’t 60, which is the official count from the list of clubs on the Sherwood website (A list anyone can access, if you’re interested).
I’m a senior who’s been part of a fairly diverse number of groups, and I hadn’t heard of most of them until I began researching for this article. Beyond honor-societies and more established clubs like Chemistry club or Film club, there are all sorts of smaller groups that represent a broad range of interests. There are clubs for everything from Corn Hole, to Fishing, to Latin Dance. In this and upcoming articles, I’ll be highlighting some lesser-known clubs at Sherwood to bring them to the attention of the larger student body.
As I was looking over the list of clubs to write this article on, one that really stuck out to me was the Adventure Club. “What is Adventure Club?” you might be thinking.
According to their mission statement, the Adventure Club’s purpose is to “Bring people together to share our love for trying new things in the outdoors and having fun.”
They do this by organizing and going on various outdoor trips, such as hikes and visits to local recreational areas. Just a few weeks ago, they went on a hike at Lake Needwood.
“Adventure means doing something fun you wouldn’t do on an everyday basis. [It] can be anything you make it, something fun with friends” said officer, Junior Ally Newby. “We try to go on adventures once a month, usually on Saturdays.”
Currently the club has about 25 members. They meet twice a month at lunch on Thursdays in room E263. If you are interested in joining, you can swing by a meeting at lunch on the first Thursday of the month, or join their Remind group by texting @shsadv2018 to 81010. They’re planning a trip to Brookside Gardens later this month so don’t wait, join now!
