Adventure-Leadership Program


LEt’s get outside!

Are you in your formative middle school years? Do you like being outside and moving around? Are you interested in hiking, swimming, yoga, camping, or Ultimate Frisbee? Do you want to learn about wilderness first aid? Have you ever created art using only your natural surroundings?

If this sounds interesting to you, take a look below...

Summer in Maine is BEAUTIFUL and we will take advantage of this at camp! 

The adventure/leadership program is a week long overnight experience for young girls on beautiful Wilson Lake in Wilton, Maine. This program includes outdoor adventures, with a focus on leadership, combined with learning skills for exploring natural surroundings. I will host seven girls, ages 11 -13, at a private home on Wilson Lake.  We will enjoy the lake, journal, challenge ourselves physically, hike and explore nearby mountains and parks, practice yoga, play Ultimate Frisbee, swim, learn skills for exploring and staying safe in the wilderness, cook over an open campfire almost every night, and generally enjoy outdoor life in Maine in the summer!

What might a day look like?

We will wake up every day around 7:45 and the girls will have the option to go swimming to start their day. After eating a breakfast of their choice (including a delicious fruit smoothie!) we will make our lunch and pack up our day bags to head out for a hike.

In the beginning of the week we will do shorter walks/hikes and as the week goes on, we will try more challenging ones. We will integrate land art into many of our hikes! If the girls are feeling up for it towards the end of the week, we will hike a mountain that has a beautiful lake at the top! It is a perfect spot to enjoy a picnic lunch and cool off in the water before hiking back down.

After our morning hikes, we will return home for some time to swim and relax before the afternoon activities. In the afternoon we will focus on developing skills such as leadership, journaling, expressing emotions through art, wilderness first aid, and wilderness survival. Before dinner we will do something active again such as Ultimate frisbee, swimming, or yoga.

In the evening we will make dinner together and hang out by the campfire. We will play games and read a book together. There will be tea every night and an opportunity to review the day and talk about what we are looking forward to the next day!
