Outdoor Adventure

Climbing TripWhat is Outdoor Adventure?
Philadelphia is more than a concrete jungle.  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 United 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!
