I'm an "alumni leader" for the Family Outings group. I led ski, camping and hiking trips for many years until my son "aged out" but I still love hanging out with kids and sharing my joy in all things outdoorsy with kids and parents alike. I also love to cook for groups and get folks together over the prep table.

Eddy Luttmer (617-413-1815; before 9pm)

I was the long time chair of the family outings committee and led dozens of trips over the years before my kids "aged out". I love to play outside - especially on XC skis, in a solo whitewater canoe or on my sailboat and I thoroughly enjoy teaching kids (and adults).
