Workshop

Series

For the past decade, Outdoor Chattanooga has hosted a series of free Winter Workshops designed to teach people a variety of outdoor skills in a classroom-based setting. The goal is to inspire and prepare the inner adventurer inside you to get outside and play. Due to the popularity of these clinics, we have decided to offer them in the fall and spring as well!

These clinics will take place on varying Thursdays throughout the fall, winter, and spring at the Philip Grymes Outdoor Chattanooga Center. We will also include a virtual option for those who prefer to learn these skills from the comfort of your home. See the full schedule and descriptions below! Workshops are 100% free and open to the public. No prior experience required to attend. Join us for one, some or all to improve your outdoor skills! We recommend you register in advance, however registration is not required.
