Looking for summer activities for your kids?  Tired of typical

sports camps?  Try out our unique Expedition Wachusett event!

Our Amazing Race-inspired event runs from 9:00AM to 4:00PM, 

highlighted by a race-to-the-summit event at Wachusett Mountain in

Princeton, MA.  After registration in Northborough, all participants

will receive a pre-event briefing that includes a safety talk, an

overview of the Expedition rules, and instruction on map-reading,

compass navigation, hiking and backcountry etiquette.


Teams will meet with their Team Leader and then complete a 

mini-challenge that sets the tone for the expedition, and tests

their navigation skills!


Once at the mountain, participants should expect to hike between 3-6 miles up, down and around the summit of Wachusett Mountain.  Teams will encounter along the way various challenges, both physical and mental, that will require teamwork, problem-solving and strong communication.  First team to the Summit wins the Expedition!


After all teams complete the adventure, individual teams gather to debrief on their experience.  Debriefing is a critical part of the adventure learning experience.  Finally, the entire group will reconvene for awards, and to share highlights and a few laughs.
