The Schenectady Chapter’s Young Members Group is geared toward young adults in their 20s, 30s, and 40s, or anyone who is young at heart and shares a love for the outdoors and support for ADK’s mission.
Our Young Members Group is active, and invites ADK members to join us for regular socials and adventures. Our trips range from local hikes to multi-day backpacking adventures; from snowshoeing through the High Peaks, to swimming or paddling in the summer heat.
Take part in outings for all fitness levels and interests, and have the opportunity to learn and meet new friends, no matter where you’re starting from.
Whether it’s an easy walk in the woods to enjoy the scenery and socialize, or challenging yourself in the High Peaks and beyond, you can do it with ADK. If you’re looking to hike all the fire tower mountains, become an Adirondack 46er, gain more experience on the trails/water, make new friends, or get and stay in shape, ADK’s Young Member Group can help you get there!
Not sure about hitting the trail yet? Come to a social event and meet current members, get to know ADK, ask questions and learn about gear, and share your ideas for future outings!
Want to volunteer? We currently are looking for new YM Outings Leaders. Plan and lead outdoor recreational outings or social activities for young adults & families. Outings can range from beginner & kid-friendly to advanced, to offer something for everyone, and ADK will teach you what you need to know. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
