Explore the glacier carved lowlands of the Vermont Piedmont afloat and afoot on this beginner canoe trek. After an afternoon of professional paddling instruction, we'll load up the canoes and spend two nights floating down the river as we develop our Leave No Trace wilderness ethic and build outdoor skills. Once we've experienced the river valley by boat, we'll strike out on foot to explore some of the ridges and peaks that surround it.
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
Wildwood's exciting Teen Adventure Trips are designed to immerse teens in the natural wonders of some of New England's most beautiful areas and to provide fun, appropriate challenges for teens with all levels of outdoor experience. Trip groups are coed and consist of two leaders and five to ten campers. With a focus on learning about the environment, teens gain valuable experience and skills in hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, sea kayaking, biking, and low-impact camping. (For trips that include bicycling, participants should already be comfortable riding a bicycle.) After a day of group building and orientation, teen campers and their trip leaders leave the base camp Wildwood and head into the wilds of New England. Along the way, they will meet with environmental professionals and natural history experts and learn firsthand about natural science and conservation. Most trip groups also complete a brief service project, allowing teens to leave a positive mark on one of the special places they visit.
