Backpacking trips are five days long, with four nights spent camping out in the mountains of New England. Trips are most often sent to the White Mountains of New Hampshire and Maine, and to the Green Mountains of Vermont.
Aside from experiencing the beauty of the outdoors, groups will often have the opportunity to swim in rivers and lakes, watch the sun rise and set from the top of a mountain, and bond with fellow group members on the trail! Each member of the group carries their own gear, as well as a share of the group gear (stoves, pans, tarps, etc).
As with all of our trips, backpacking requires no previous experience in the outdoors, just the enthusiasm to try something new and a willingness to push yourself. We strongly encourage all who are interested to apply!
