Saltash Mountain Camp

 

Overview

This wilderness tripping camp adheres to Quaker values. Six to eight campers, led by two counselors, go on each trip. Participants may rock climb on Deer's Leap; reroute a part of the Appalachian Trail; canoe on Maine's Flagstaff Lake; hike a 5000-foot peak in the White Mountains; or scale Camel's Hump on Vermont's Long Trail to see the sunset, then return for sunrise a few hours later. While on these trips, campers develop such outdoor living skills as fire building, cooking, knot making, and facility with a map and compass.
