Outdoor adventures

Fresh air and healthy hearts partner up at Outdoor Adventure events, sponsored by the Department of Recreation. Approximately two trips are planned each month, March through October, and guided by organizations throughout the Delaware Valley, including Penn’s Outing Club. Past activities have included hiking, kayaking and horseback riding.
