Join us at our monthly climbing nights at DC Bouldering Project. Climbing nights take place the first Wednesday of every month. The best part is, the first 25 Soul Trak guests receive free entry and rentals! Anyone after that will pay an entry fee of $15 but will receive free rentals.
Bouldering Nights are a monthly event where bouldering enthusiasts can climb with others at their own pace and on their own courses with the support of Soul Trak Volunteer leads.
Please be sure to arrive ten minutes early to give time to check in and receive rentals. We will do a Soul Trak Circle with short intros at 7:00 pm and re-groups at 8:00 pm for a photo.

We will be ice-skating at the Sculpture Garden Ice Rink.
Skaters should dress warmly, bring snacks, layers, for the day. Your registration fee will go towards skate rentals and skating passes.
Wear synthetic or wool base layers avoid cotton products, as they are neither waterproof nor breathable. Synthetic material or wool works best. If it is very cold, then adding a mid layer over the base is suggested. A fleece, sweater, and other similar clothing will keep you warm.
Warm drinks and snacks are available from the pavilion cafe.
We will meet as a group and have brief intros before skating.

January Volunteer Event: Interest Meeting, Meet and Greet, Sign up for Spring Events
Are you interested in Volunteering with Soul Trak? Join us for an introductory Happy Hour to meet the Soul Trak team and other volunteers, learn about what volunteers do, and sign up for Spring events.
Soul Trak's programs would not be possible without the help of our amazing team of volunteers. Learn how to lead group hikes, bike rides, or climbing trips, no experience necessary. If you are excited about the outdoors and making the outdoors more accessible and diverse, then come volunteer with us!
RSVP now to let us know you're interested, and we will announce the location of this event in December.
Join Soul Trak and the Canoe Cruisers Association at the pool to gain comfort and confidence in a kayak while in a safe, supportive environment for practicing.
Volunteers from CCA will provide gear (life jacket/PFD, boats, and paddles) as well as guidance and pointers to practice maneuvering in a kayak. By practicing in a pool, participants gain confidence in rolling and exiting a kayak while in the water. Participants will have the opportunity to meet experienced kayakers, learn about whitewater kayaking, and gain confidence in a kayak in preparation for outdoor adventures! No experience necessary, just come ready to get wet and with enthusiasm to practice! These pool sessions will prepare participants to take the Soul Trak Whitewater Kayaking Class in July on the Potomac River in conjunction with Calleva River School.
Soul Trak will be offering 3 total pool sessions in the months January, February and March. Due to limited volunteer and gear capacity, there will be a registration limit of 5 participants per session. If the session is full, we encourage you to try signing up for the next session or get on the waitlist as availability might open up. Registration for each session will close a week from the session date.
In order to complete your registration and secure your spot, there is a $10 event membership fee to be paid through the American Canoe Association. Link to the ACA website to register HERE.
Get ready for a tour and a scavenger hunt at one of our local treasures, the United States Botanic Gardens!
Walkers should bring water, and snacks for the walk. It is important to have enough fuel for the day.
We will meet as a group and do brief intros before starting the tour. Please try to arrive right at 10a or up to 20 minutes earlier!
