Have you been to Boundless Adventures located on the campus of Purchase College?
A few weeks ago, I was invited by Apple Moms of the Hudson Valley to experience the ropes and zip lines experience.
When you arrive, the first thing you need to do is head to registration located in the parking lot. This is where you will make sure you have your waivers filled out and get your tickets. To save time, it is best to presign the waiver online.
After registration, it is time to get suited up with a harness and gloves. Then, we spent some time learning the ropes of safety do’s and don’ts.
Every member of the staff that we encountered during our visit was super helpful. from showing us how to use the carabiners and giving helpful strategies as we maneuvered through the course.
Here we are at the beginning of the course. Just like skiing, the courses are level by color for level of expertise – yellow, green, blue and black. This obstacle course is great for beginners and for the super advanced.
I am not the most adventurous person but with the help of family and friends, I navigated the beginning of the course with words of encouragement. I was 10 feet in the air and that was a pretty big leap for me! After this climb back and forth, I chose to photograph my girls as they journeyed through the park. Baby steps for me!
Here’s a glimpse of our time at Boundless Adventures.
I love how they looked soaring through the trees. So strong and so brave!
Zip line away! I was so proud of them and I am glad that they took the chance!
With the help of our always brave friend Karen of Apple Moms of the Hudson Valley, the girls excelled and went to the next level!
Plan on being at Boundless Adventures for at least 3 hours so that you can experience the variety of course that they offer or go back on your favorite!
As you can see they were all smiles after our visit to Boundless Adventures. For more information, visit their website.
If you are in NYC, you can easily take the New Haven/Metro North Line to Rye and take a taxi to campus for a day of adventure.

My daughter graduated from Purchase College a few years ago. The grounds are really nice and very easy to get to. I bet she wishes this was there at the time.

This is so much fun, but short of setting up a course in my backyard, I would not know where to find one in my area.

This looks like tons of fun. I’ve always wanted to take my Dad ziplineing. I think that he would like this.

I think it looks like a fun day. I would probably freak out a few times, though, lol.
Karen Propes says
Looks like everyone was having a great time. I wish we had something like that around here. I believe they have something similar in the Great Smokey Mountains in North Carolina. We will have to check it out. We went snowboarding up there last year.

This looks like a fun place to visit. I am too much of a chicken to zipline though lol..
Tracy Suzanne DeLoach says
The older I get the more I think I need to move up to New York or at least leave Florida. It’s so hot that the only time you go out in the summer is to hit the beach. I would love to do more activities like this. You and the girls look like you have so much fun and the woods look so green & cool. Thanks for sharing your fun!
