A cocktail at Pier I is one way to take in the New York summer. But if you're feeling starved for fresh air, open sky, and a little thing called nature, help yourself to this Adventure: a two-day, one-night camping trip in the Poconos, complete with whitewater rafting, hiking, yoga, all meals included, and a slew of other feel-good, outdoor activities.
Our getaway begins early in the morning at West 45th Street and 11th Avenue, where we'll board a bus for the two-hour journey to the Poconos Mountains. After we settle into our camp site, we'll jump into our choice of activities, including: a hiking trip for all skill levels, yoga, capture the flag, and more. We'll also have the opportunity to try out the zip-line, shoot paintballs at the on-site target range, join a game of beach volleyball, and dive into an assortment of yard games (think: cornhole, kan jam, ladder golf, and more). With our appetites worked up, we'll all head back to the camp site for lunch and dive into an afternoon of more activities. Following an al fresco dinner feast, we'll boogie the night away with a bonfire and dance party. Then it's into our tents and sleeping bags (feel free to bring one, or call ahead and take advantage of on-site rentals) for some shuteye. Don't forget warm clothes: It can get chilly in the mountains come nightfall.
On Sunday, we'll rise and shine and head to the Lehigh River for a guided whitewater rafting trip, which starts at the cascading Glen Onoko Falls. While the trip is perfect for all skill levels, if you're not a rafting aficionado, there's no expectation to join in: Activities from Saturday will still be available at the campground. After hours of fun in the sun or on the water, we'll gather our gear, grab another bite to eat, and then get back on the bus to the Big Apple, satisfied with some time in the real outdoors.
