Outing Club

    
           Snowshoeing, Franklin Falls Dam, Franklin, NH  
    
The Pembroke Hill School Outing Club was created to offer Hill School students the opportunity to get out of the house and into the great big New Hampshire outdoors with a parent or family member.  This club features monthly outdoor activities including, but not limited to: hiking, snow shoeing, biking, sledding, skating, kayaking/canoeing, and ice fishing.  Adventures are typically held on Friday afternoons or Saturdays. Scroll below to see some pictures from our different adventures.

PHS Outing Club Adventures

2016-2017

***Adventures may need to be altered, postponed, or canceled due to weather conditions.  

***Difficulty levels are approximate and can vary depending on your child’s physical ability and stamina.  Difficulty levels are also based on my best judgment of what a 7-10 year old is capable of.

***All Hill School children MUST check in prior to the departure time so their attendance can be noted in our records.  Children who participate in 4 or more adventures, will receive their very own PHS Outing Club patch!!!
