3½ Week or seven-week sessions
Lake Ninevah in Mt. Holly, Vermont
Questers is for young adults looking for an extended wilderness experience and leadership opportunities. Questers have hiked Vermont’s Long Trail, canoed and hiked through the Adirondacks, and backpacked through the White Mountains. The only requirement for Questers is an excitement about gaining solid tripping skills. As the session begins, campers are learning trip planning, route setting, meal prep, rock climbing, and the many other skills necessary for extended camping. Through practice and instruction, campers quickly take on increasing responsibility. At the climax of the trip, the Questers plan and execute an entire short trip as the staff supervises. Questers end the trip with solid wilderness skills and confidence in their leadership abilities.
