Overview

Teens ages 15-17 get out and give back while living and working in the backcountry of the White Mountain National Forest! 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 are new to backpacking and volunteer trail work. Arrival is Sunday afternoon at 3:00 at the AMC's newly renovated Camp Dodge Trails Training Center, where volunteers will meet their crew and leaders, enjoy dinner and spend the night. The following morning, crew members will pack up food, tools, camping equipment and personal gear, and will then be driven by van to a nearby trailhead and hike in to set up their camp. Spike camps are located off trail, relatively close to the project site. Packs weigh 40-60 lbs. The nearby trail work project 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 may enjoy a hike, swim, or game at camp. Crew members all take turns helping with meal preparation and camp chores throughout the week. The crew will return to Camp Dodge on Friday to unpack gear, clean tools, and enjoy a final lunch before the 1:00 PM departure.
