Positive Adventures will guide your child on an exciting 15-day excursion through picturesque New England. Each trip will have 20 youth, ages 13-17. The trip starts in Boston then travels through New Hampshire and Maine. Your kids will get to participate in climbing in Acadia National Park, canoeing on the Saco River, backpacking on the Appalachian Trail, and whitewater rafting on Kennebec River.

Day 1

The kids arrive in Boston and start right in with an urban adventure. The group spends time getting to know each other while traveling through Boston on the world famous Duck Tours. Then we stop for a bite at one of Boston’s best traditional New England seafood houses, Legal Seafood.  As your child experiences Boston’s history and sights, they will get the chance to break the ice with their group and set the tone on a high note for your trip.


Day 2-3

The teens visit the Browne Center for Innovative Learning and experience a taste of adventure on a high ropes course. Zip lines, cargo nets, and a giant leap of faith highlight the day. The group works through problem-solving activities and spends time bonding while camping in Mongolian-style yurts.


Day 3-5

Rolling on the River! The group hits the Saco River on the Maine-New Hampshire border. With beautiful beaches for camping, clear water, and canoes, the river life is grand. Here, the teens learn how to plan a multi-day trip and they begin to prepare for their five-day backpacking experience on the Appalachian Trail. At night, the sound of the river and the laughter of new friends around a campfire lights up the clear skies.


Day 5-7

Acadia National Park, here we come! Beautiful granite coastline, mountains, and beaches make for our adventure playground. Your child learns more about camping and navigation skills, teamwork, and leadership. The group spends a night in Bar Harbor, one of Maine’s most popular summer towns where the kids can taste lobster-flavored ice cream, tour the historic harbor, and catch a movie.


Day 8-12

Get ready for the wilderness!!! The teens prepare for their 5-day backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail through the Maine wilderness. During this portion of the trip everything the group has learned about camping, map and compass skills, and teamwork is put to the test. Maine’s rugged mountains, rivers, and thick forests provide the perfect challenge for the beginner to intermediate backpacker. One of the most remote parts of the Appalachian Trail, this stretch of wilderness has scores of wildlife, stunning views, and majestic trees that your child will enjoy.


Day 13-15

Relaxation is the key after ripping through Maine’s backcountry for five days. The group will eat the best barbeque they have ever tasted. After they wind down a little, they attend a class on whitewater rafting and then for one final hurrah, the group rafts down one of America’s premier whitewater sections in the upper and lower Kennebec River! It is a fantastic way to cap off their 15-day adven
