Teen Adventure Trip: Backpacking the Wild Whites

Description

Hike across beautiful ridgelines and valleys in the White Mountains' Pemigewasset Wilderness. On this challenging backpacking trip, we'll summit several of New Hampshire's famed 4,000-foot peaks and take in some of the best views New England has to offer.

This itinerary includes 30 miles of backpacking over approximately four days, hiking up to 10 miles per day. This challenging backpacking trip is appropriate for those with prior backpacking experience or beginners with significant camping and hiking experience and good physical fitness. It is important to have proper hiking boots that have been broken in in advance.

Teen Adventure Trips immerse teens entering grades 9-12 in the natural wonders of some of New England's most beautiful areas. All trips focus on developing a love of the outdoors, but each trip takes a unique approach. A wide variety of trip options accommodate many interests and levels of outdoor experience.

Teen Adventure Trips begin with a half day of team-building and orientation at Blue Hills. Groups then travel to destinations around the Northeast. Along the way, they'll 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 small and co-ed, with two leaders and between 5-10 teens. Participants practice hands-on skills in conservation and outdoor living and develop knowledge of the region's natural history.
