Outdoor Activities

Summit 50 Plus hosts different outdoor activities all year long, allowing members and guests to enjoy the great outdoors and meet new friends. Our groups can accommodate most skill-levels, from first-timers to fitness fanatics—however, all participants are responsible for their own safety, which includes knowing and respecting personal capabilities and limitations.

By attending, you assume responsibility for yourself and your guests, you agree to follow the instructions of the Trip Leader in order to minimize risk, and you understand the Trip Leader and/or any Summit 50 Plus staff are present to guide the group, but may not have any training in wilderness rescue, first aid, or emergency medicine.

If you need assistance in finding the right group for your skill level, contact us today.
