Roaring Brook Camp for Boys



Canoeing and backpacking trips offered at Roaring Brook vary, allowing boys to return in future years without repeating the route taken. The backpacking trip program traverses mountains in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine, with boys assisting with route and campsite selection in groupings that are organized by age and hiking ability. The mountaineering program, conducted on the camp's 35-foot cliff, features instruction in rock climbing, rappelling and Tyrolean traverse safety procedures, equipment use and movement techniques. A ropes program enables campers to attempt 16 interconnected low and high ropes courses.
