Outdoor Adventure
Wonder Week Workshop

for rising 6th and 7th grade boys

Do you love the great outdoors? Want to explore some of the beautiful natural areas of Western New York?

At the Outdoor Adventure Workshop you will travel to Allegheny State Park to hike in the forest while learning the principles of "leave no trace," and the importance of having respect for our natural resources. 

Weather permitting, you'll also paddle along the Buffalo River and enjoy a unique view of Buffalo’s industrial past. Other excursions include fishing at Tifft Nature Preserve and a picnic in Chestnut Ridge after a hike to the eternal flame falls. 

Research has demonstrated that exposure to nature has valuable benefits for us all, but especially for boys. Those benefits, along with less screen time and more opportunities for boys to make personal connections, are bonuses to the physical exercise and unique experiences of our trips.

Participants will need hiking boots or sneakers, sunscreen, bug spray, a rain coat, and lunch for each day.
