Outdoor Adventures

What is Outdoor Adventures?

Our programs explore the hidden gems of greater Philadelphia: the local mountains, rock, rivers, and forests. During spring break, winter break and summer we venture out to other wild destinations throughout the Mid-Atlantic States. From introductory to advanced courses we provide trips designed to increase competency in human powered activities.

Learn to rock climb, ski, backpack, and much more. Stop by and check out our indoor climbing wall, or register for one of our outdoor trips!
