The beauty and tranquillity of nature can often be a great relief to the stressful life of an average college student. One of Cabrini’s newest clubs offers such help to those in need of a break from the pressure in their daily lives.

The Outdoor Adventure Club, is a place where a student can let go of the hassles of everyday life and absorb himself or herself in the splendor of nature.

Juniors Elizabeth Farrell and Wendy Wilson started the club last semester.

“We started the club for people who are interested in hiking, backpacking and other outdoor activities,” Farrell said.

Last fall the group went on hikes in scenic Fairmount Park. This semester they plan on going on several day hikes in Fairmount Park and the Delaware Water Gap. They also plan to go on an overnight backpacking trip in April. Farrell also said that the group hopes to go on a white-water rafting trip in April and also go to a wall-climbing facility some time in the future.

Participants have really enjoyed the activities so far because they are different, fun and healthy, according to Farrell. The club offers students a great way to relax and meet fellow students with similar interests. “Anybody can do it, you don’t have to be in great shape,” Farrell said.

The Outdoor Adventure Club is always looking for new members, so contact the Student Activities at 902-8407 for more information.
