Camp Chewonki for Girls
Herons are at the perfect age to try a longer wilderness adventure. The freedom of an open trail or a winding river allow girls to strip away the complications of everyday life, and focus on being their best authentic selfs.
Herons take on extra responsibility, learning how to plan and pack for extended trips, master canoeing and camping skills, work as a group, and learn how to “lean in” – embracing the challenges that come with adventure and self-discovery.
We offer Herons a chance to travel Maine’s wild and scenic river, the 92-mile-long Allagash Wilderness Waterway. This exciting trip includes numerous waterfalls, portages, dams, lakes, and encounters with iconic Maine wildlife such as moose and loons.
