EARLY EXPEDITIONS

rising 7th - 9th graders

(Close to home; one night away)

Early Expeditions trips are designed to help campers new to the outdoors become acquainted with overnight adventure trips.  During week one, campers spend their days on site, enjoying a range of traditional camp activities such as swimming, zip lining, field games & mountain biking. In the second week, the Early Expeditions trip will include 3 full days of fun & adventure, and a one night camp-out at camp. Each expedition is a new and exciting adventure, including breathtaking hikes to local peaks, canoeing/kayaking on waterways such as Constitution Marsh, and visits to cool local attractions such as Brownstone Adventure Park and Howe Caverns. 

Early Expedition campers will have the opportunity to attend a field trip to the Durland Scout Center on the Fridays of weeks 1, 3, 5 & 7. The Durland Permission slip is part of the online registration process, and must be complete before attending.
