White Mountain Base Camp Adult Volunteer Vacation

Date and Time

Sunday, August 16, 2020 4:00PM - Saturday, August 22, 2020 9:00AM


AMC's Camp Dodge Trails Training Center,
New Hampshire, White Mountains,


Registration is required for this activity.


Spend a week in beautiful Pinkham Notch, in the heart of New Hampshire's White Mountains, giving back to the nearby trails, and enjoying the company of fellow stewards over meals at AMC's newly renovated Camp Dodge Trails Training Center. Volunteer Trail Work: Monday through Thursday, the crew will be working on a section of trail that is near AMC's Camp Dodge, with less than 2 miles to hike to the project site each day. If needed, the crew will be driven by van to a nearby trailhead. The project may involve installing drainage structures, building rock steps, constructing bog bridges, restoring impacted areas, or other trail maintenance projects. Crews work rain or shine. While the hike and work can be strenuous, these crews are designed to engage volunteers with no prior trail volunteer experience. Trained leaders will guide the group throughout the week. Recreation Day: This crew includes an unguided optional Friday recreation day, when participants are welcome to choose their own adventure. Your trail project will be completed on Thursday, but you are welcome to stay at Camp Dodge at no extra charge until Saturday morning to explore! Camp Dodge staff can provide hiking or sight-seeing recommendations - there's so much to do with Pinkham Notch as your base camp! Accommodations: The crew will be staying in AMC's Camp Dodge bunkhouses. Breakfast and dinner are served from Sunday night through Saturday morning, and trail lunches are provided each day. A complete packing list will be provided after registration.
