Chewonki Explorers spend three weeks hiking, paddling, laughing, and learning their way over mountains, across lakes, and down rivers in some of the most beautiful places in Maine. This is a great way to gain and refine wilderness skills while enjoying the company of like-minded girls who love to be outside.
Chewonki Explorers find out about themselves as they meet the challenges and experience the joy of wilderness travel. Leaders provide instruction and support as the girls practice two traditional modes of adventuring through Maine: on foot and by canoe. The small, tight-knit community of Explorers cultivates confidence and friendship, preparing the girls for more difficult trips as they grow.
The three-week Explorers trip is a perfect opportunity to gain experience before taking on one of Chewonki’s more advanced trips.
