If you love the outdoors or think you might, welcome! The goal of our group is find people who have similar outdoor interests and get them together while allowing those who would like to do something different from their normal activities a chance for new experiences. And, of course, to have fun while doing it! Check out our photo album to see some of our fun and exciting past meetups.
I encourage anyone who has a favorite outdoor activity to share that with the group - there are as many activities to do outside as there is space to do them. From a calm day kayaking on the lake to a week backpacking on the Appalachian Trail, from rock climbing to skydiving, you'll find someone here who shares your interests.
This year our group has grown tremendously. The Event Organizers are the key that keeps this group running. When inquiring about an event, please make sure you contact the person organizing that event, as they will have the most up-to-date information. Remember to thank your Event Organizer, as they volunteer to create the events and keep things fun for everyone. So let's get outside and play!
Remember, "Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing" so come play outside!
Welcome, Central PA Outdoor Enthusiasts!
