Older girls also have opportunities to enjoy overnight hikes and canoe trips. In addition many of them choose to experience white water rafting down the Kennebec River with the Moxie Rafting Company complete with spending the night in cabin-tents and songs around the campfire. Our most avid hikers are provided the opportunity to climb Mt. Katahdin, the highest point in Maine, led by certified Maine Trip Leaders with a sleep-out in lean-tos just steps away from the beautiful mid-mountain Chimney Pond.
Our 9th graders enjoy a wonderful, group-bonding trip to Acadia National Park. After enjoying popovers at Jordan Pond House they cook dinner over the fire and camp out in tents under the starry skies. An early wakeup brings them up Cadillac Mountain to experience one of the first sunrises in the US. The trip finishes with exploration around the park and discovery of Bar Harbor. This trip offers just enough for them to get a taste of the glory Acadia has to offer.
The OCs (Oldest Campers) look forward to a 4-day/3-night in the historic and beautiful city of Old Quebec. Staying in a clean, well maintained youth hostel in the heart of the city, this is a special bonding trip for our oldest campers as they are immersed in the culture through live music, fabulous food, historic and cultural sights, window shopping and sightseeing.
