Program Summary

This backpacking trip takes teens well off the beaten track & deep into the wilderness, where they’ll spend 6 days and 5 nights exploring the vast and majestic White Mountains with two skilled guides. A blend of adventure, challenge & fun, teens will venture off the beaten path to explore deep into the backcountry. Learning around navigation, outdoor cooking, tool use and finding hidden gems within the mountains will abound. In addition, this trip will focus on:

  • Navigation, mapping and orienteering
  • Tool use and knot tying
  • Campfire cooking
  • Friction fire skills
  • Team building

Each day, teens will take on the challenge of route-finding over rugged terrain through the use of map and compass and observing natural features. Their efforts will be rewarded by panoramic vistas from remote peaks and refreshing dips into spectacular natural rock pools of cool, mountain waters.

Each night, they’ll make camp in one of New England’s wildest places, and deepen their understanding of the plants, animals, and fungi that live there.
