Help support your MeetupChip in
Doeres engage in various Outdoor activities for enriching, strengthening and balancing mind, body and spirit in harmony with Nature. Activities are low to moderate risk, moderate to strenuous difficulty, adventurous to challenging, with a mix of exploration, recreation, learning, fun, freedom and building a better Self & Society. Some activities involve kids and families.
We are active year-around, enjoying all seasons and terrains of the North-east. Organizers expect new members to join for active participation in group meetups as per the mission above and not for increased meetup memberships, socialization, networking, promoting business etc. We intend to keep the group small to outdoors active members and inactivity with this meetup for an extended period (>3months) risk exclusion from the group. We can adequately prepare you for safe and warm winter outdoor activities during the season. Please contact via email if you are not responded in 2 weeks.
Please read the Disclaimer page. Joining the group implies that you have read this and do not hold any meetup group member responsible for any mishap during activity.
1) Get out in nature You probably seriously underestimate how important this is. (Actually, there’s research that says you do.) Being in nature reduces stress, makes you more creative, improves your memory and may even make you a better person.
