About Appalachian Mountain Cluborganization
Appalachian Mountain Club offers Teen Wilderness Adventures, a unique summer outdoor program in New Hampshire, New York, Massachusetts and Maine. Teen Wilderness Adventures let you discover more of the great outdoors in the company of exceptional leaders and new friends. We have teen summer camps designed for young people with previous experience as well as those new to outdoor experiences. New for 2014! This year we’re offering Appalachian Trail Backpacks in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York; Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Rock Climbing the Gunks, and Ultralight Backpacking the Devil’s Path! We are adding trips for older teens including Wilderness First Aid and Advanced Whitewater Kayaking! Finally, youth adventures will enjoy the comforts of Lonesome Lake Hut during the new Basecamp Adventure! We offer exciting, rewarding outdoor adventure education for youth ages 12-18 ranging in length from 3-20 days. Teen Wilderness Adventures combine one or more outdoor activities–like hiking, rock climbing, backpacking, kayaking, canoeing, rafting, and mountain biking–with spectacular destinations. Group size on our programs ranges from 6 to 10, and each of our trips has at least two instructors at all times. Teen Wilderness Adventures participants learn valuable wilderness skills and develop essential life skills. This unique combination fosters an appreciation for the environment, develops self-esteem, instills a spirit of adventure, and promotes teamwork, friendship, and a sense of community through memorable wilderness experiences.
