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.
