The Chapter has also become involved in a number of other programs over the years. In 1992, the Lehigh Valley Group, a sub-group of the DV Chapter , was formed and has continued to run monthly program meetings and bring together members from the northern part of the chapter ever since. In 1993, AMC launched operations at the Mohican Outdoor Center in Delaware Water Gap. Kent Johnson, then DV’s Regional Director, discovered this property while involved in trail work efforts in the area, convinced AMC’s executive staff from Boston that it was a worthwhile project, and organized the volunteer committee that launched operations there. DV Chapter members were extremely active in the renovations and programming at Mohican in the first two years when it was a volunteer-run operation, and ever since in assisting the AMC staff-run operations there.
