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 wilderness activities including kayaking, canoeing & mountain biking as well as traditional camp activities. In the second week, the Early Expedition 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 Catamount Adventure Park.
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. If your camper is signed up for one or more of these weeks please fill out a Durland Permission slip. While at the Durland Scout Center they will have the opportunity to swim in the lake and boat.
