Overview

Teens ages 14-16 get out and give back while living and working in the backcountry of the Berkshires of Massachusetts! Volunteer trail crews are an opportunity to meet new friends, learn about conservation, practice backcountry camping skills, and accomplish a meaningful trail stewardship project. One-week crews are appropriate for volunteers who have new to camping and volunteer trail work. Arrival is 4:00 PM on Sunday afternoon at Noble View Outdoor Center. Volunteers will meet their crew and leaders, set up camp, and get ready for dinner. The following morning, the crew will head out to begin their trail stewardship project. The work may involve installing drainage structures, building rock steps, constructing bog bridges, restoring impacted areas, building cairns and scree walls, and other trail maintenance projects. The work will be strenuous, and we will be out rain or shine. After working, crews will return to camp and may enjoy a hike, swim, or game. Crew members all take turns helping with meal preparation and camp chores throughout the week. The crew will wrap up on Friday to unpack gear, clean tools, and enjoy a final lunch before the 1:00 PM departure.
