Journey to beautiful backcountry wilderness destinations!

Advanced trips, the top tier of our adventure program, are month-long journeys to the beautiful backcountry regions of the Adirondacks. Campers work together to set goals, plan routes through the wilderness, select backcountry campsites, and prepare family style meals. In the process campers challenge themselves and each other, growing in incredible ways all with the guidance and support of our most experienced trip leaders. There is truly nothing comparable to the life lessons and realizations that an Advanced trip can offer.
