• New York City is beautiful, but it can get crowded, loud, and exhausting, especially during the holidays. Recreation provides monthly escapes from the hustle and bustle every month. Join us on the slopes, in the mountains, at apple orchards, or around the campfire, and meet your fellow Narwhals. We also provide ample opportunities to develop new skills, like archery and rock climbing. Past trips include New York Knicks games, hiking at Mount Beacon, and whitewater rafting.

    Current students can visit NarwhalNation to view and sign up for upcoming trips. Please note that an RSVP on NarwhalNation does not guarantee you a seat; you must purchase your ticket through our marketplace to reserve your spot on the trip. Once you’ve reserved your spot, you must also fill out a waiver. Requests for refunds must be received five business days before the trip date. No refunds are available on deposit classes and overnight trips.
