Registration is required for this activity.


This fun trip is a great opportunity for teens to take part in a community of young people who are actively seeking to improve the relationship between people and the land, while exploring their own personal connections to nature. In collaboration with The Wilderness Society (TWS), this program is meant to facilitate thought-provoking discussions about the intersection between social issues and our nation's history of protecting landscapes for public use and enjoyment, all while backpacking and canoeing through the public waterways and wilderness areas of New Hampshire's White Mountain National Forest and Lakes Region. Teens on this trip can expect to combine some full days hiking and canoeing with time to learn and share ideas about public lands, art, conservation, and advocacy. Each teen will also have the opportunity to present a personal call-to-action at the end of the trip on a topic that they choose, to an audience of AMC and TWS staff. Please fill out the appliation to enroll. Full and partial scholarships are available for this program! Contact for more information. This group will meet and end at the AMC's Training and Equipment Center at 6 Spice Street in Charlestown, MA.
