Wet & Wild is an LGBTQ+ outdoor adventure club, based in Ireland. The club’s aim is to run adventurous, fun, and welcoming events, by organising a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities throughout the year. These events include kayaking, surfing, hiking, climbing, sea swimming, rounders, mountain biking, rounders, bowling, quasar, trampoline dodgeball, camping, adventure races, and many more.
The club is open to all members of the LGBTQ+ Community – a friendly, all-inclusive group established in 2009, with over 500 active members.
All you need to do to be a part of the club is to share in the enthusiasm, take on the adventures, and have some fun. The level of your adventure/fitness doesn’t really matter, it’s about getting out there and getting involved.
Wet and Wild are very excited for the year ahead. They are calling it the Wet and Wild ‘2020 Adventure Revolution’, and you can see from their manifesto that they have a very big year planned. They use the Meetup app to organise most of their events, and it’s very simple to download and join.
They are a not for profit community organisation, and there are no membership fees to join.
