We made it easier this summer to get outside with our public launch of Get Outdoors PA followed by Parks and Recreation month - JULY! Be part of what's "in" by being "out",,, pick one of the activities that is really "in" this year and try it out!
Check out what is "in" today in recreation... archery is a low-impact way to get outside. While it can be the means to sharpening one’s hunting skills, many enjoy the sport for the thrill of precision competition. Try it out and see what The Hunger Games enthusiasts are talking about!
For the more adventuresome, climbing puts a new perspective on the outdoors. Learn the basics of rock climbing, safety, and equipment through instructional learning and actual climbing and rappelling.
Don't lose out on the many river sojourns across PA in July and August. Check out the many opportunities for paddling on our Event Calendar. Paddling will give you a new perspective on nature and allow you to discover places you never knew existed.
