Tired of the same old campus scenery? Excited to try something new and adventurous? Want to build new, meaningful friendships? Join OA for an overnight trip to the Princeton Blairstown Center!
PBC was started as a summer camp in 1908 by Princeton undergrads, and continues to serve youth from NJ and beyond through summer and academic year programming. For this overnight trip, well drive the 90 minutes up to Blairstown, and then spend the afternoon engaging in a variety of camp activities-- canoeing, high ropes courses, ziplining, etc. Evening activities may include a campfire & smores, star gazing, or a night hike around the property. We'll get up early on Sunday morning for breakfast and a short hike, and return to campus in the early afternoon.
All meals will be served in the main lodge, and you'll spend Saturday night in bunkbeds in a heated cabin, with full access to bathrooms and showers.
This trip is open to everyone-- whether you've never been hiking before or just completed a thru-hike! There is no special equipment needed to participate- all you need is comfortable athletic clothing.
Friday, October 26- Deadline to sign-up.
Saturday, November 10-- 9am: Depart from Campus
Sunday, November 11-- 3pm: Return to Campus
OA and PBC can provide all equipment, including sleeping bags (for the bunk beds). The only thing you need to bring is warm, comfortable athletic clothing and shoes.
