Off-Site Trek Programs

Scouts and adult leaders can enjoy a number of off-site trek programs offered during their week of camp. Trips are organized by a dedicated staff member and follow all BSA requirements for off-site programs. Additional trek programs will be organized on a weekly basis based on interest.

5 Mile Hike - A special hike is a great opportunity to see the Grand Monadnock from a different perspective and also to cover requirements for rank advancement. Conducted in a safe manner, this program exposes boys to the whole Thorndike Pond while they learn the proper way to hike on the road and use compasses for navigation.

Sunset Summit - What better way to celebrate a week at camp than climb a mountain for the sunset? Join the staff in this fun event that is sure to enlighten everyone. Due to the strenuous nature of the hike, the Sunset Summit requires Scouts to be at least a second year Scout. The Director will make a judgment call on participation for all youth and adults looking to participate.

Muck Walk - For those on the adventurous side, wade your way through the unique environment of the Camp Wanocksett swamp. Leave camp nice and clean, and return covered with muddy, slimy filth! This is always a great way to spend the afternoon with friends.

Rock Climbing on Mt. Monadnock - Join the climbing staff for an afternoon of rock climbing on one of the most climbed mountains in the world. Views from the top of our routes are amazing!

Kimball’s Ice Cream Bike Ride - One afternoon, take a trip 6 miles into Jaffrey center and grab a cone of your favorite ice cream from the best ice cream in the region.
