Minnewaska, NY

Oncology | Rock Climbing in the Shawangunk Mountains

Spend three days Out Living It with your First Descents Family at Minnewaska State Park for some rock climbing with the trusted guides at Alpine Endeavors! You’ll get to enjoy two days of iconic climbs, beautiful scenery, and lots of adventure.

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!

There will be three program dates available:

  • July 24-26, 2021
  • August 6-8, 2021
  • August 9-11, 2021

Registration will be emailed to the Northeast Region 12 weeks prior to the program.

All accommodations, meals, and gear will be provided.
