    ADVENTURE CAMP (two-week program) You will build outdoor survival skills, swim and fish in Lake Mashipacong, learn environmental science basics, and make new friends. The highlight is the Vagabond, a multi-night backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail or Delaware River. Specialty camps include biking, rock climbing, canoeing, and farmstead intensives.

    LEADERS IN TRAINING (four-week program) You'll spend your month focusing on our four modules: Personal Growth, Leadership Development, Community Service, and Environmental Stewardship. There will also be a multi-day Vagabond backpacking trip.
