  • Ramsey's Farm
    Ramsey?s Farm is Delaware?s most aesthetically ascendant pumpkin-dotted prairie, welcoming seasonal family outings and Halloween spirit-summoning sessions. Your Groupon is good for admission for two to the autumnal expanse. Once inside, browse the more-than-10-acre pumpkin patch for a perfectly ovoid jack-o?-lantern canvas, or try to collect all eight different varieties of pumpkin that the farm offers, which, once arranged in a perfect half-circle, reveal the answers to the following evening?s Jeopardy episode. After you?ve found the perfect combination of holiday gourds, hop onto a human-moving tractor for a halcyon hayride through the scenic Brandywine River Valley. Next, test your spatial senses and biological compass with a trip through an eight-acre corn maze, replete with in-maze educational opportunities that cover modern farming, local agriculture, and the hibernation schedules of the area's anthropomorphic mole population. Tykes looking to conquer something other than confusingly arranged cornstalks can explore a bale maze for hay-strewn, investigative excitement.

  • TerraMar Adventures
    The ODDyssey Half Marthon training team is waiting for you––but they won't wait long. Every Tuesday night in April, the team makes a trek across Philadelphia's network of bridges in anticipation of the ODDyssey Half Marathon on June 8. After each run, the whole team piles into a bar for a complimentary Sly Fox craft beer and a pit stain competition. At the end of happy hour, participants enter into a raffle for such prizes as running shoes, apparel, and koozies. Anyone who completes all five training runs will earn a commemorative T-shirt as well. Each week focuses on one running club and one fundraising effort, and all proceeds from registration go to charity.

  • Mad Dash
    The City Mad Dash builds competitive camaraderie by sending teams of no more than five individuals on an urban scavenger hunt, armed with nothing but a smartphone as their guide. Participants activate the four-hour trek by logging into the GooseChase mobile application, rife with more than 40 missions to tackle urban landscape and more than 50 ways to capture rogue geese. Though assignments remain secret until the race, example activities include working covertly in a service job where team members are not employed, cleaning a stranger's car windshield, and convincing brave pedestrians to receive an on-street dental exam. Tasks are completed when a clear and creative photo is sent to a team of judges. The squad to accomplish the most challenges and interact with its city in the most inventive, least evil manner during the four hours earns $200, the title of Ultimate Scavenger Hunter, and a complimentary invisibility cloak. Participants can relive the action through an online album of photographs from every team's adventure. An after-party follows the event until 5 p.m.

  • Greenhill Day Camp at PMFS
    "Summer experiences for children should be fun, enriching and affordable." That's the overarching philosophy that Greenhill Day Camp runs by, and it's no surprise that it puts children's needs at the top. Connected to the exploration-centric Plymouth Meeting Friends School, the camp builds those experiences for kids each day with educational summertime activities. Camp sessions are grouped both by age and by theme, giving children the chance to choose a preferred camp week—perhaps one based on learning culinary skills or the wonders of science. In between the daily morning assembly and the campers' sleepy evening commutes home, they spend time splashing at the indoor pool, crafting sculptures from recycled finds, and figuring out which counselor might be the one who's cool with a surprise puppy visitor.
