Last Saturday, August 14th, AMPHS volunteers and summer interns enjoyed a field trip that featured a unique integration of nature, culture, and adventure. AMPHS volunteers drove upstate to the Storm King Art Center only one hour north of New York City, in the lower Hudson Valley. Our volunteers spent a beautiful time together having a picnic and exploring the magic inside one of the world’s leading sculpture parks.
The fun didn’t stop there; after this magical excursion, we headed up to Cold Spring, a small historical village in southeastern New York, where we explored local food shops and antique stores (some which carried pieces dating back to the Civil War!).
We settled at a local ice cream shop and while there, shared experiences, stories and personal goals while enjoying the local delicacy. ‘It was a great trip; I really appreciate AMPHS organizing it. It really shows how much this organization care about its volunteers and interns,” said Adriana Cardenas, a volunteer since January 2012. “One of the best parts was that everyone had to a chance to share not only food but their experiences working at AMPHS. I felt like I got the opportunity to know everyone on a much more personal level.”’
We hope our volunteers enjoyed the trip and are ready to come back to AMPHS to bring the organization to new levels!
