Everything is greater outdoors! That is why Merrell, Campmor, and friends are hosting a
weekend of free outdoor workshops, activities, and classes in beautiful Harriman State Park!
This event is designed for YOU to learn something new while enjoying the GREAT
OUTDOORS! Saturday, June 18th and Sunday, June 19th, are set up as a block schedule of outdoor workshops and activities that participants can choose from. Participate in one activity or stay for many. Scroll down for the schedule of events.
This event features classes led by Merrell, Urban and Outdoor Survival, Explore Harriman,
Nicole Butterfield, Ropes Rigging and Trees, Let's Do Paint, and Photour Adventures!
Merrell will have tents set up at the picnic area at the Anthony Wayne Rec Area in Harriman
State Park. Each workshop will start and finish at this site. Additionally, we will have some
tables from local organizations that will stick around throughout the two days! Merrell will also provide refreshments and snacks. Parking will be available at the vast gravel lot across the street from the setup. There is no fee for parking.
Merrell will have demo shoes available throughout the weekend for any person interested in
taking them on a spin during a workshop or activity. Models include the world-famous Moab 2 Mid Waterproof, as well as the Moab Speed, the Nova, the Antora, and more! Additionally,
there will be opportunities to win free Merrell merchandise!!!
The overall event is free, but there is a donation-based registration option -- all proceeds will go towards the NY-NJ Trail Conference. To read more about their organization, please visit
