Campers entering grade 10
Adventurers continue their Four Trails program with a six- to 10-day hiking trip in the Saddlebacks and Bigelow Range in Maine, paddle the New Hampshire and Maine waterways for four to six days, and participate in a service learning project at Merrowvista. Our days are intentional, designed to develop best self, encourage balanced living, and help campers create a positive community.

“Every summer my son returns having made a palpable leap in maturity. Sometimes the progress he's made comes out in a conversation where he expresses a belief system that has no doubt been influenced by the wonderful values reinforced at camp. We use 'best self' as shorthand for asking if behavior is in line with values, and when I ask, 'Are you being your best self right now?' That usually sparks some reflection.”
