Learning at Solebury School isn’t limited to the classroom. Solebury offers various outdoor activities that take advantage of our location in Bucks County, PA, a region known for its rolling hills and state parks set alongside the Delaware River. We explore other areas of the United States, as well, by hosting multi-day trips.
Our goal is to build our students’ confidence through challenging yet fun excursions and develop an appreciation and respect for nature. Regardless of skill level, we take students outdoors to experience nature, to exercise and to inspire a sense of peace and well-being.
