Trek across beautiful ridge lines, through lush valleys, and sleep atop one of New Hampshire's famed 4,000 footers on Wildwood's beginner backpacking trip. We'll spend a day split between Wildwood and Franconia Notch learning the basics of backpacking and the essentials of Leave No Trace before we strike out in the remote Pilot Range of the White Mountains.
This itinerary includes four days & three nights of backpacking. Participants can expect to carry an internal frame pack weighing 35-45 pounds while traveling up to six miles per day.
Wildwood Teen Adventure Trips immerse teens in the natural wonders of some of the Northeast's most beautiful areas. While all trips are focused on developing a love of the natural world, each trip takes a unique approach. Our wide variety of trips provides options for many interests and any level of outdoor experience.
After half a day of group-building and orientation at Wildwood, campers and trip leaders travel to destinations throughout the American Northeast. Along the way, they participate in a variety of outdoor adventures, learn the basics of Leave No Trace camping and trekking, and meet with conservation professionals to participate in hands on environmental study or service.
Groups are co-ed, with two leaders and between six and ten teens. Participants practice hands-on skills in conservation science, outdoor living, Leave No Trace and develop knowledge of the region's natural history.
Wildwood Teen Adventure Trips are recommended for teens entering grades 9-12. For more details on trip itineraries and activities please contact the Wildwood Teen Program Coordinator at 603-899-5589
