Healthcare Workers | Rock Climbing in the Shawangunk Mountains

Join your fellow healthcare workers for a weekend of adventure, connection, and challenge as we head to Minnewaska State Park for some rock climbing with the trusted guides at Alpine Endeavors! You’ll get to enjoy two days of iconic climbs and beautiful scenery with the First Descents community.

Downtime will be spent at the beautiful Minnewaska Lodge! This includes delicious catered meals, grounding yoga, campfires, and, more than likely, lots of belly laughs. This is not a program you want to miss out on– full of adventure and stunning surroundings, it’s tough to beat!
