The Stephen & Betsy Corman AMC Harriman Outdoor Center,
New York, Hudson River Valley,
Come unwind by spending a summer weekend in the woods with friends (both new and old) sharing what was lost during those long months of social distancing. This weekend we will take time to connect, laugh, and enjoy the sunshine and the stars. Activities will include morning stretch, guided hikes around breakneck pond, swimming and kayaking/canoeing. In the evening, we will enjoy a happy hour while we harness our creativity by creating vision boards. We will end Saturday evening around a fire circle where we can share are dreams for the future and let go of the past. Gourmet meals (including vegetarian and vegan options available) will be served family style at the dining hall. We will stay In Beaver Brook shelters and tent platforms.
