Shawangunk Mountains, NY

Hero Recharge | Rock Climbing

Take some time to connect with nature alongside fellow healthcare workers on this invigorating HERO RECHARGE program with First Descents! In the spirit of Out Living It, this weekend strives to light you up with adventure and community.  Just two hours north of NYC lies the Gunks, home to some of the most renowned rock climbs in the Northeast. Spend the weekend with Alpine Endeavors, climbing high above the tree line to take in the luminous last days of summer and relaxing at The Minnewaska Lodge. This is the perfect opportunity to get the outdoor climbing skills you’ve always dreamed of in the iconic Gunks with fellow healthcare workers looking for a recharge!
