MIIS has had a ton of outdoor clubs in the past and now. Surfing, snorkeling, climbing club, and more. All of these clubs provide a fantastic outlet to students to enjoy California and bond with their fellow students in ways that the classroom or conferences simply cannot do.

The MIIS Outdoor Recreation Club is a newly established club on campus that's trying to offer everything that a recreation department has, but without being a department. So far, it's been a great success and hit with students. As more trips are planned, the club will gain momentum and grow. Though, this club cannot expand quickly enough to meet student's demands.

Looking around the area, larger schools like UC Santa Cruz offer surf lessons, outdoor trips, and more. Ideally, this would be great but we cannot offer that now because of the lack of funding for the Club. The fundraiser in the past was a great success, but it would take several fundraisers to even get the necessary tents and camping equipment to rent for students.

This petition will be brought to administrators to consider making the outdoor recreation club into a department or elevated from "club status" so we can offer more to students. Please sign and pass this off to all students who find that a recreation department would help MIIS grow into even a better school and community.

It should be noted that like anything at any school, this petition is only the START to something at MIIS. It does take time to implement these things and funding isn't the main priority of the petition. Something like this could make prodeals for new equipment easier and much more. Expect great things to happen from this petition, but at beginning stages where by each semester new things will be introduced to students. It's just the beginning BUT this has amazing potential for the future of MIIS and the community!!!
