rising 8th-10th graders
Our Pathfinder trips are our most popular trips, as they allow campers to venture a bit farther and longer from home, and to sample a wide range of adventure activities including sailing, zip lining, high ropes, and hiking. Following a week of traditional day camp and team building, campers set out on a three-day, two night trip that allows them to use their outdoor skills and deepen new friendships in some of the most beautiful settings in the Northeast.
Pathfinder 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 found in the Adventure Bound Packet your camper will need to complete before attending. While at the Durland Scout Center they will have the opportunity to swim in the lake and boat.
