Black Outdoors Meetup Spring Fling

  • Forefront Office 928 Broadway Suite 404 New York, NY 10010 (map)

The Black Outdoors & Adventures Group was started by a leader at Forefront Brooklyn whose story within our church community reminds us of the impact Forefront has in our lives.

The Spring Fling is a meet & greet opportunity to get to know others in the group and discuss upcoming trips and adventures. It'll be a great night of mingling, food, light music, and good people who share common interests. Click here to learn more and RSVP. The cost is $25 and space is limited.

The Black Outdoors & Adventures Group

In a sea of 100 outdoor and adventure enthusiasts 5% might be black or of color, if you're lucky. Mina figured there has to be folks out there like her, who get turned on by the scent of firewood or are transported by breathing deeply outdoors (NOT in the city), people with favorite memories that involve being outdoors, camping, skiing, biking, swimming, beaching, indoor rock climbing, hiking, traveling and exploring the world. 
If you are one of those people, then this group is for you. Let's come together, build a fun and open community, and promote black people doing non-traditional things. Join us to do trips together and eat each other's food -- It will be great! This group is open to people of color (a.k.a. black, latino....) We will not turn you away if you feel an affinity to the group. 

New activities to try include fishing, survival skills, surfing, kayaking, etc. Don't be intimidated!  We will go slow and accommodate newbies. All you need is a desire to try new things.
