Maine High Adventure Summer 2017

Are you interested in going on a High Adventure Experience? Opportunities abound throughout northern Maine for extended backcountry travel! Canoeing is by far the most popular mode of travel for Maine High Adventure crews. Paddling is available on lakes, ponds, easy to intermediate streams and rivers, and challenging whitewater. A crew can plan a laid-back relaxing trip, a strenuous demanding trip, or anything in between.

Read more information about the Maine High Adventure.  This trip requires that scouts commit by Dec/Jan.   ½ Payment is due on February 1. Final ½ is due May 1.   Minimum age: must be 13 before Sept 1, 2017.  MHA does not have “weeks” like Squanto.  Trips are fully up to scouts for starting date (any day of the week) and length of trip.   MHA only runs crews from mid-June to mid-August.  Trips are typically 8-11 days, with 6 days being the minimum.   And you must add 2 days (1+1) of travel time from/to Franklin.

If you are interested in the Maine Adventure, please speak with Mr. McGuire and indicate your preferred week.
