SOAR
You'll rarely have a better time than one of the SOAR excursions to the performing arts, regional festivals, historic sites, guided tours, biking and skiing, shopping venues and ballgames, among others. Many of these trips sell out very quickly. One time we had to bring in the police dogs to push back the crown, but the dogs were on the seniors' side. They brought treats. Crafty.

SOAR is Montgomery County Recreation's "Senior Outdoor Adventures in Recreation" program. It is a program designed for active adults, age 55 and over. Each activity or trip requires a substantial amount of walking and/or physical exertion. Program participants should be in good physical condition and consult with their physician if they have any concerns before registering or participating in an activity.


Also, since these programs are held rain or shine, participants should plan to dress accordingly. Every effort will be made to accommodate individuals with disabilities on each trip. However, due to the historic nature and outdoor adventure components of many trips, this might not always be possible. Please call the SOAR trip coordinator at 240-777-4926 to discuss your individual needs and concerns.
