Campers, grab a paddle and harness! We will be heading on a wild adventure. The experience starts with classic rock climbing routes in the White Mountains. Campers will work with our staff to plan a group hike in the White Mountains. The hike’s mileage and route will be determined as a part of the planning process. We will be tent camping at both Lafayette State Campground and the Adventure Bound Campground in Maine. From Adventure Bound, guides will lead us in a fun day riding the rapids of the renowned Kennebec River! Evenings will be spent next to the campfire preparing meals, telling stories and playing games.
