In partnership with the National Park Service, Teens To Trails brings high school Outing Clubs together for a fun-filled outdoor weekend exploring Acadia National Park. Throughout the weekend, T3 will put together various activities such as hiking, biking and rock climbing. Outing Clubs will learn about the natural history of the Park and practice outdoor and leadership skills for the upcoming school year.
People travel from all over the world to visit Acadia National Park. T3 wants all Maine teens to experience this special place!
Winter Skills Weekend
Join Teens To Trails, Maine Huts & Trails and the Outdoor Sport Institute for a winter overnight at one of the amazing huts in the Carrabassett Valley Region. Outing Club advisors and students will have the chance to practice snowshoeing or cross-country skiing, learn about winter trip planning and even practice how to set up a winter campsite or winter kitchen. Participants can practice skills alongside outdoor educators and gain confidence in planning and executing winter excursions for their Outing Club. Students will learn about First-Aid basics and have hands-on practice for preventing and treating cold injuries with a wilderness health professional.
T3’s Spring Thing Weekend is a great way to celebrate the end of the school year with fellow Outing Clubs! Outing Clubs are invited to camp out at Adventure Bound and spend the weekend exploring The Forks. On Saturday, clubs can choose from various activities such as hiking, canoe expeditions, SUP excursions or a ropes course activity. In the evening, we will cook delicious meals, play field games, swim in the pool or cozy up to the campfire and eat s’mores! We invite guest speakers to share their inspiring outdoor adventures and enjoy a special showing of the Maine Outdoor Film Festival. We finish up the weekend with a full-day whitewater rafting adventure on the Kennebec River!
Life Happens Outside Summer Extavaganza
Teens To Trails is calling all Outing Club members to be a part of the 1st Annual Life Happens Outside Festival. As a part of the weekend, T3 has partnered with Salt Pump Climbing Co. for an overnight rock-climbing extravaganza before heading to the Festival on Saturday morning to volunteer!
This is FREE for high school students!
