Streamlining our local programming

As we plan for a future that includes a more robust offering of REI experiences in select locations across the U.S., we’ve decided to discontinue local programming in five markets where we currently operate.

What's changing?

April 11, 2021 will be the final day of local programming in the following locations:

  • Chattanooga, TN
  • North Conway, NH
  • San Diego, CA
  • Santa Barbara & Ventura, CA
  • Sierra (Sacramento), CA

We’ll issue full refunds to all participants registered for programs scheduled after that day.

The co-op's mission to connect people with the outdoors has never been more relevant, and our classes, guided day trips and multi-day adventures help us to deliver on that mission. Although we’re winding down our experiences programs in these areas, we hope you’ll continue to tap into the expertise at your local REI for your next outdoor adventure. They would love to see you!
