Saltash Mountain Camp



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.
