Backcountry Adventure (13-15)
On this adventure, you’ll spend 4 days and 3 nights in the peaceful woods and waters of Western Maine! You will begin by paddling the historic Magalloway River into Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge where you’ll witness Bald Eagle nesting sites, Osprey, and various waterfowl along the way. Moose and deer are frequently seen here at the many foraging areas, and you will fall asleep to the sounds of Common Loon calls. Days will be spent practicing paddle strokes, swimming, and campsite skills such as fire cooking, shelter building, and axe and knife safety. After paddling Lake Umbagog, you will depart on your next adventure on a backpacking trip in beautiful Grafton Notch State Park. You will spend a night in the mountains learning how to cook on a backpacking stove and learn what it’s like to have everything you need on your back. The week will wrap up back at Bryant Pond with our camp-wide cookout and campfire on Thursday night!
