TOA 2016
Backpacking Trip for Teens age 14-18

Summer Teen Outdoor Adventure

Overview: The Summer Teen Outdoor Adventures (TOA) is a multi-day backpacking trip in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. We hike among some of the most beautiful mountains in the world, sleep in tents and AMC Huts & Lodges, eat delicious food prepared along the trail and by Hut Croo, and challenge ourselves with the support of the entire group.  No previous hiking experience required!  Just a sense of adventure and desire to challenge yourself.

Teen Outdoor Adventures are offered at no cost to our families thanks to the fundraising efforts of our board and generous community support. In addition, On Belay provides food, and the clothing and equipment necessary for each participant. We are able to do this in part because of the amazing generosity of AMC's Youth Opportunities Program.
