OLIVEBRIDGE – Summer Hoot 2019 @ The Ashokan Center

 

3-day Summer Music Festival

 

Friday, August 23 – Sunday, August 25, 2019

 

 

 

The Summer Hoot is your source for family fun in nature, local food and crafts, and lyric-laden, foot-stomping, soul-soothing, fiddle-infused live music where the Catskills meet the Hudson River Valley.

 

Discover your new favorite bands, try your hand at blacksmithing, visit the sheep, go on a group hike to Cathedral Gorge, camp in a tent, sleep in a bunk, play music under the stars, sing by a campfire, learn to square dance, improve your juggling, participate in some cool music & dance workshops, see a film, bond with the trees, meet our craft vendors, eat local food, drink local beer and cider, try a hula hoop, see an old friend, make a new friend, sing an old song, and get inspiration for a new one.

KERHONKSON – Ropes: 4-Day Backpacking Adventure for High School Teens with Wild Earth

 

Ready for a backpacking adventure?

 

Join Wild Earth’s instructors for a 3-night, 4-day trek in the Catskills!

 

 

Monday, August 12 – Thursday, August 15, 2019

 

For Grades 9-12

 

$590

 

 

When it comes to transformative outdoor experiences there is one type of trip that always sticks out: the long distance trek. There are many aspects to the experience that will shift how you feel and how you respond to the world around you. Through many miles of hiking, the quiet moments of observation and reflection, and the deep bonding that one experiences as part of a team, you can’t help but be transformed.

 

31.2 miles: The Hike

Our route will traverse 31.2 miles of Catskill trails, including the tallest peak in the Catskills (Slide Mountain), the greatest elevation gain for a single trail (2593’ at Peekamoose Mountain), and will bring us into wild forest and wilderness lands of the Catskill Forest Preserve (America’s first wilderness).

 

Aside from the physical and mental challenges we will face, we will also take time to learn about the ecological and cultural history of the areas we will pass through. No doubt this will be much more than a simple walk in the woods!

 

A Collaborative Adventure

Every day, we will come together as a pack to review the routes, evaluate our resources (ie: water, food, firewood), plan for meals and set up camp. We will also look at the distance we need to travel to meet our target, the current conditions and discuss how we might need to adjust our plan to ensure the safety or comfort of the group.

 

Those who participate in this journey will learn what it takes to cover large distances, with nothing but a well formed plan and what they can carry on their back. We look forward to sharing this journey with you and are excited to create lasting, memories with you, as you learn the skills that will prepare you for a life full of adventures.

 

 

 

Starting Location

Trails End Road, Kerhonkson, NY
