“Two voices are there – one of the mountains, one of the sea – each a mighty voice.”
Get your adventure on some of Maine’s best terrain. Each week is different so you can combine multiple camps for a great Maine Outdoor Experience.
Learn the ropes and rock climb on spectacular cliffs overlooking pristine lakes and the Atlantic Ocean. Paddle by sea kayak or canoe to offshore islands where you can sample edibles from the sea as we learn about the natural environment and how to better preserve it. Go whitewater rafting on Class III- IV rapids on the Penobscot River. The last days are spent rock climbing, rappelling, paddleboarding and enjoying time with new friends. This is a great opportunity to learn about many different outdoor activities in a short time.
Meet new friends, learn camping skills, land and sea navigation skills, and basic boating and climbing skills in this challenging and fun-filled seven day trip. Sea kayaking programs will be led by ACA certified instructors and all rock climbing will be taught by PCIA or AMGA certified instructors. No experience required.
