On this page you will find the information for overnight teen programs. These programs are only open to youth ages 13-18. Teens are also welcome to attend all day programs. Please check our program calendar for more information on those!
Teen Outdoor Adventures are multi-day backpacking trips in the White Mountains. We hike up and around some of the most beautiful mountains in the world, sleep at campgrounds and AMC huts, eat delicious backpacking food like GORP (Google it), and take in the fresh air and wise lessons of nature.
Our 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, transportation to and from designated locations, and the clothing and equipment necessary for each participant. We are able to do this in part because of the amazing generosity of AMCs Youth Opportunities Program.
