To bring the healing power of nature into the lives of our guardians
Another Summit is a program within Guardian Revival, an organization formed in order to address a need for training and social services to veterans and first responders, our Guardians, in the Lower Hudson Valley. Another Summit is an outdoor adventure program that organizes and leads small groups of veterans, first responders, their families, and community members on organized hiking, backpacking, and paddling adventures in the Lower Hudson Valley of New York.
Outing 911 Memorial Sun 9/11/2022 This was my first time at the 911 Memorial. I will cherish this visit. It won’t be my last visit. It was truly moving. It was a great city hike in Lower Manhattan and throughout the trail we saw statues and memorials commemorating the people that are part of that area’s history, military and civilian, dating back to 1524. I appreciate the leader’s understanding for waiting for the participants and staying later than planned to complete the hike.
Had a great time with the group on 9/11 hike up Torne Mountain. We held a remembrance for those who lost their lives at the WTC. It was a sobering moment.
I love that this group is available to those that want to attend. Expanding the program membership would improve it - get the word out. This is a wonderful group for military and first responders to get out and enjoy nature, burn off some steam and be with people who have similar experiences and backgrounds.
Wonderful way to honor the memory of those killed on 9/11, especially the members of FDNY, NYPD, and PAPD who gave their lives trying to save others. Well organized hike, love spending time with this group of awesome people. And special thanks to the retired firefighter who brought the memorial stone we carried.
This was a very informative training session. I learned how barriers keep people from joining an event and how to make sure as many people can be included. The teacher was very knowledgeable on the subject and was good at teaching all levels if participants.
The leader is amazing! The place is quiet and conducive to learning. The program is challenging but doable. The day is quiet varied including indoor and outdoor time, individual and group work. I would highly recommend this, especially to people who have little experience with the outdoors as they build confidence and competence in a wonderful field.
Had a great time at the Snowshoeing event with our very knowledgeable guide, Aaron! Learned a lot on the way up and got to meet a lot of great fellow veterans. I recommend these trips for anyone who doesn't set aside a lot of time to coordinate a trip out of the city (like myself), its a great way to just show up and have a lot of fun.
The Another Summit team is great! They planned all of the logistics, which played out flawlessly. Their staff is responsive and respectful. Our crew went snowshoeing, for which Another Summit provided the necessary equipment. We even got some outdoor educated, which made for an even more memorable time. Highly recommended!
Great organization providing easy access to rewarding outdoor activities
I had a great time on our snowshoeing/hike in Cold Springs! Aaron was very accomodating and gave wonderful, non judgmental advice when I arrived with too many layers for the trip (I'd never hiked up a mountain in the snow and my hands sometimes gets cold quickly). They provided everyone with hand/toe warmers and the option of snowshoes or cleats depending on what you wanted to try (I went with cleats). We learned how to navigate using trail maps/markers and they brought us to some beautiful views of the valley, the Hudson, West Point and the Catskill mountains (you could even see the NYC skyline from up there!). We learned a lot of history about the area and got to see some natural splendor from great vantage point. All in all a well-spent Sunday. I'm glad I said yes to this trip.
Amazing people doing great things. I went on a snowshoeing trip with them. Cannot recommend them enough.
Amazing people doing great stuff. I went on a shoeshoeing trip with them. Cannot recommend it enough.
