Rangeley I-(Level 4) Natalie & Miles
Do you like gettin weird in the out of doors? Do you like spooning in lean-tos? If so come join the King and Queen of Vermont on an amphibious journey. Never been Vermont? Well we’re in maine…. But luckily the King and Queen have traveled two states west through the lawless, helmet-less, seatbelt-less lands of Newhampshire, and are here to get down in the woods and the water with you.
We will be hiking on the AT and canoeing through some beautiful lakes. On the way, the King will leave no fungi unidentified, and the Queen will regale you with tales around the fire of the farmlands of her youth. We will act as your collegiate shamans on this totally psychedelic adventure, and we will all return to Lewiston enlightened, with strong thighs and strong arms.
I did it, it’s done, you know what I’m saying? I’ve got to do it. Ain’t nothing to it, but to do it…
Rangeley II- (Level 4) Sophie & Wil
First, do not worry if you are not an amphibian. Second, do not worry if you are not a great canoe-r. The peculiar and perfect pair of Sophie Baron from Lexington, MA and Wil Muller from Toledo, OH – are going to lead you on a week of stunning sights, gorgeous hikes, and relaxing canoeing trips. We will be beyond excited to hike/canoe through backwoods Maine during the day and relax by fireside at night! We love telling embarrassing stories and dancing like fools. With hiking experience in Maine, South America, Colorado, Northern Michigan, the Alps, and many more – we will make this a trip to never forget. PICK US!!
Wanted: Out-going, nerdy, sporty, goofy, driven, open-minded First-years.
Our Goal: Have the time of our lives and make your experience as positive as humanly possible!
Squam Islands I- (Level 2) Julia & Tim
Yo Bobcatzzz, this is a public service announcement, so perk those ears upppppp.
Squam Islands 1 is currently looking for a league of extraordinary young lads and lasses to take on an adventurous journey into the uncharted territory of Squam Lake and the Green Mountains in the one and only state of NEW HAMPSHIRE (no of course I am not from NH). If you have the desire to explore Squam Lake by canoe for that perfect rope swing and then hike to some of the best views of the Lakes Region, then this is the trip for you. What could possibly be better than kickin’ it on a beach, hiking to the top of a beautiful peak, cookin’ smores over a cozy campfire, or sleeping under the stars with a group that you will never forget???? Nothing, but doing it twice.
Squam Islands II- (Level 2) Olivia & John
Explore the scenic NH lakes region with a local guide…
Discover the beauty of the White Mountains…
Taiji every morning…
Bond with your classmates in a canoe and a mountain…
Find your inner self…
Discover your spirit animal…
Enjoy scenic nature toilets with a view….
Do these things interest you? If so, come join John and Liv on the amphibious Squam Islands Two! We will Island hop, mountain hop, bunny hop and Lindy hop through the NH lakes region. Rope swinging, lake swimming and campfire chilling skills are pre-requisites. Can’t wait to explore with you!
Flagstaff/Bigelow I- (Level 3) Caroline & Jordan
On this introduction to Maine living we’ll be bagging some peaks in the Bigelow Range and conquering islands on Flagstaff Lake in Northern Maine. Along the way we’ll take our time enjoying the sights, munching some trail mix, swimming, and possibly meeting some new large-antlered friends. The woods is the best place to get to know new people and we got four days in it, so I am not saying we will be best friends by the end but there’s about 99% chance.
