TEEN TRIP CAMPS | AGES 11 - 15
Teen Trip is more than just a camp, it's a summer vacation! Teens will spend their summer traveling the northern New England area exploring all the fun adventures it holds. From boogie boarding at the beach and sliding down the natural water slides of the White Mountains to making the plunge down Bizzaro's 221 foot drop at Six Flags New England and enjoying an occasional cookout, there is never a dull moment at camp! Teens will be assigned to one of two trip experiences: Level 1 or Level 2. Teens assigned to Level 1 will spend their day with our adventure seeking staff and other teens. Level 2 allows teens to explore our destination with fellow teens and they are given designated check-in times throughout the day. If you have further questions about our two options, please contact the Teen Trip Director. Please be advised that in the event of inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances our trips are subject to change at short notice. However, the fun is never in short supply!
