Overview

This trip offers the perfect balance of some of the best outdoor activities the North Country has to offer. Start your trip exploring the many fun day hikes available in the Pinkham Notch area of New Hampshire before spending three days learning rock-climbing techniques on the famous cliffs of Cathedral and Whitehorse ledges. Finally, explore the serene waters canoeing the Connecticut river in Northern New Hampshire, learning paddle strokes and water rescue and traveling by canoe from one wilderness campsite to the next. General Itinerary: Day 1: After an introductory meeting with instructors, group and parents, gear is checked and issued. After lunch the group packs their backpacks and heads out for their first campsite. At camp they will learn to set up tents, cook on a camp stove, and get to know each other better. Day 2-4: The group will continue from camp to camp in the northern White Mountains. They may enjoy a swim in a nearby swimming hole before making camp for their evening routine of cooking, games, reflection, and bonding. Day 5-7: The group, with their instructors, will meet with professional rock climbing guides from EMS each morning and choose a different cliff to enjoy for the day. They will spend the days learning to climb, belay, and rappel, and will build up to the ability to experience a multi-pitch climbing experience on their 3rd day if weather permits. Day 8: The group will be transported to the Umabagog Wildlife Refuge in Northern NH, where they will set off on 4 days of expedition canoeing. They will learn how to pack their equipment into dry-bags and their boats, learn paddle strokes and set off towards their first backcountry lakeside camp. Day 9: The group will continue to travel by boat from one campsite to the next, with the potential for a short portage along the way and plentiful opportunities to view wildlife, swim, and view colorful sunsets. Day 10: The group will canoe to their take-out where they will be picked up and transported back to Pinkham Notch. They will have lunch, de-issue borrowed equipment and debrief their trip before being picked up in the afternoon.
