Overview

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 connection to nature. In collaboration with The Wilderness Society (TWS), this program is meant to facilitate thought-provoking discussions about the intersection between social issues, this nation's history of protecting landscapes for public use and enjoyment, and the wellbeing of our planet's ecosystems, 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 enjoy hiking and canoeing, while also contributing to regional citizen science projects and discussing conservation, climate research, civil rights, and advocacy. Each teen will also have the opportunity to share a personal call-to-action at the end of the trip on a topic they choose, to an audience of AMC and TWS staff. Please fill out the application to enroll. Full and partial scholarships are available for this program! Contact amcteenwildernessadv@outdoors.org for more information. This trip starts and ends at AMC's Training and Equipment Center in Charlestown, MA.
