Into the Wild

Our Wilderness Program is the coolest (and often, the coldest) way to challenge yourself and explore the natural wonders of our northern New England location.

Hike. Rock climb. Ice climb. Kayak. Ski. You'll develop skills, practice environmental stewardship and have a blast. You might even find yourself training to lead programs - it's intense, and amazing. Even if you've never been into the great outdoors before, you'll find lots of ways to go wild. As your skills grow, you may find yourself in locations as far-flung as Joshua Tree National Park, Western Canada or the Massai Mara in Kenya.
