We offer outings year-round that introduce people to the benefits of outdoor recreation! We travel to local, city, county and state parks around the region, as well as towns and urban neighborhoods, to showcase the quirks and beauty of Southwestern PA. Activities include kayaking, hiking, biking, snowshoeing, fly fishing, cross country skiing, and geocaching trips. We have outings for all ages and skill levels. To find an outing that is right for you, visit our Calendar or Search Feature.
Our outings are essential to the mission of Venture Outdoors. They help us get everyone outside and connected with others who are interested in the outdoors. Venture Outdoors members receive discounts of up to 40% off the cost of the outings. The registration fee covers not only the cost of the program, but also goes to help support our efforts to get underserved youth and their families outside. More information on Venture Outdoors Membership can be found here.
If you’re interested in joining us, just make sure you have a web profile and check out the calendar here! Once you see the outings that interests you, simply click the link and follow the directions through the activity registration. You’ll receive an information sheet about a week before the outing with a more in depth description of what we’ll be doing, a gear list, trip leader name and contact information, and directions to the trailhead. Just show up 15 minutes ahead of time to sign-in, and enjoy the outing!
