Other Activities Information
Pretty much any activity that you want the Outdoors Club to
run, we will try our best to plan it as long as Messiah’s insurance policy does
not conflict and it is within fiscal reach. Some various trip that we have lead
in the past have been, wilderness photography, Bounceplex, trips to a star
observatory, and geocaching.
What is geocaching? Watch the short informational
video. Find geocaches near you, become a member, and start geocaching!
National Geographic Photographs
Check out the marvelous photos taken by skilled
photographers. Get inspired and note some of their techniques that you want to
try to emulate when you attend a wilderness photography trip.
Bounce Fun Plex is a family-owned trampoline fun complex
located in the heart of beautiful Central Pennsylvania. FUN! FUN! FUN! is what
you will have on your next visit to Bounce Fun Plex. Our trampoline complex has
been specially designed for safety. Bounce on our 360 degrees trampoline walls
and court. Bouncing off the walls has never been as fun as this.
The Astronomical Society of Harrisburg is
a non-profit organization and requests a $3-$4 donation per person from those
attending a public observing session. Your donation will help cover the costs
of opening the observatory to the public and allow us to continue to provide
exciting observing opportunities and educational programs to the community as
we have since 1955. The club continued expanding in 1979 and a
12.5" Cave Newtonian Telescope was installed in a roll-off observatory
onsite. A 17" Classical Cassegrain is housed in the Domed Observatory.
Pine Grove Furnace
Pine Grove Furnace is a very large state park
area set in a very luscious Pennsylvania valley with high ridges and hills
surrounding it. There is ample opportunities for hiking, walking, swimming,
rock climbing, and camping. Some of our best hikes are to Pine Grove - if you
haven't been on one, you should try and go! Pine Grove Furnace is about 45
minutes from campus.
