Recreation

September 25–29, 2017

In addition to the educational content, you’ll also be able to take advantage of all the great Mount Hermon recreational options like the Sequoia Adventure Course, sea kayaking, mountain biking, hiking, swimming, early morning exercise and the Redwood Canopy Tours.

Sequoia Adventure Course

One of our most popular courses. You can walk out on a platform to enjoy a unique view or the forest, or get into a harness to experience solo and tandem elements with varying degrees of physical and emotional challenge. A unique world–class opportunity you won’t want to miss.

Redwood Canopy Tour

Soar through the refreshing forest groves and experience the coastal redwoods from 150 feet above the canyon floor! This is the ultimate shared experience as small groups are led through a two–hour experience of seven platforms, two skybridges, and six zip lines of up to 440 feet in length. The Redwood Canopy Tour is one of the most physically accessible zip tours in the world.

Special Rate of $60 per person as a Legacy Registrant! (about 50% of market rate)
