History

In 2006 the owners of Dutch Springs moved into a new enterprise – NorthStar Adventure at Dutch Springs, created to offer experiential education and facilitated teamwork programs to youth and non-profit groups from across the Lehigh Valley and beyond.

The Sky Challenge, a rock wall and high-ropes course was installed overlooking the scenic Dutch Springs lake in February of 2006 and in May of the same year, NorthStar added a 10-element low-ropes course and the tools necessary for groups to accomplish their goals of developing better teamwork and stronger bonds.

In 2007 NorthStar Adventure created new programs aimed at helping Girl Scouts achieve their advancement badges. We also welcomed Kari Hunyadi and her dogs, who became part of the team as Kari introduced educational demonstrations for Dog Sledding.

Dog SleddingIn the summer of 2007 we added another rock wall, built with the intention of offering new opportunities for Boy Scouts seeking the Climbing Merit Badge and Girl Scouts seeking their High Adventure Badge.

We have since added numerous onsite and off-site programs created to encourage team development, collaboration and cooperation among a variety of non-profit organizations, scholastic groups and teams and college and university programs and activities. We are proud that NorthStar Adventure is now the favored choice in the Lehigh Valley to help your team to become more empowered and motivated.
