Activity
White Mountain 1-Week Spike Teen Trail Crew (Ages 15-17)
06/17/2018 - 06/22/2018

This program is ideal for teens, ages 15-17, to live and work in the backcountry of the White Mountain National Forest, while engaging in a worthwhile and much appreciated service project. You can expect to have a great time in the woods, while learning and practicing trail work and backcountry skills. If you are new to camping and hiking, or new to volunteer trail work, we highly recommend this as an exciting way to learn all of these great new skills. The week will begin on Sunday evening with dinner and an orientation at AMC Camp Dodge. On Monday, your crew will pack all food supplies, tools, camping equipment, and personal belongings into the woods with the Crew Leaders for a five-day, four-night excursion into the backcountry. Our packs usually weigh 40 to 60 pounds. The work may involve clearing brush to better define the trail, cleaning drainage to help with erosion problems on the mountains, installing water bars and bog bridges to stabilize the trail, repairing ski trails, building cairns, working on shelters, painting blazes, and other tasks. Please remember that the work will be strenuous and demanding, and that we will be out rain or shine. The crew will return on Friday to Camp Dodge in time to clean up and join the Friday night barbeque at 6 p.m. LEVEL: Beginner/Intermediate PRE-REQUISITE: None needed as long as there's a strong interest in the outdoors. Complete registration packet is due 3 weeks prior to start date.
