More than 12,000 square feet of indoor rock-climbing surfaces greet climbers at Doylestown Rock Gym, where they can test their scaling acumen on a network of bulges, overhangs, chimneys, and cracks. As climbers scramble over the massive facility, an alert staffer remains ready to assist when needed and remind nervous beginners that there are no mountain lions around. The space presents suitable challenges for all skill levels and facilitates advancement in the sport through individual and group instruction by on-staff experts.

Designed and built by clubbéd brothers Jock and Doug Melville, Horsham's petite greens are surrounded by more than 1,200 pines and have been challenging golfers since 1964. With 5,115 yards to play, two gamers can commandeer a cart, roar around the course, and enjoy the satisfying clatter of golf balls plunking into holes, completing the par 66 puzzle in as little as four hours. Horsham's dolled-up greens are highlighted by rock gardens, blooming flower beds, and a single, rarely seen flake of green glitter. While ease of play is the idea, purveyors of irons and woods should be wary of the aquatically enhanced 15th hole, which features water hazards to the front and right, eagerly waiting to flood your game day with par-denying waves of defeat.

Just because school is out doesn't mean learning has to end. At Greenhill Day Camp at Buckingham Friends School, the programs make education fun as well. Youngsters get out from behind desks to engage in hands-on activities, whether they're incorporating non-instructional swimming techniques during pool time or discovering an insect's tiny backpack under a magnifying glass. Each day offers up a range of recreations that may include soccer, reading, drama performances, and outdoor living skills, and campers are organized by age in order to develop social skills with peers.
