TAP-SF Lassen Camping Trip

In this coming June, TAP-SF and friends are about to embark on an epic summer nature lovin’ journey in the great outdoors. Set in the scenic Lassen Volcanic National Park, 100 lucky campers will enjoy hikes, large group games, improv, Taiwanese cuisine, and a fire pit after party in the wild. Please see below for a tentative itinerary. Plan your flights accordingly if you are coming in from outside of the Bay Area.

Please feel free to invite friends to book now as space is limited.
