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.
$90/pp registration fee includes round-trip transportation (passenger van or bus),
event and park fees, and snacks/water.
Drop-off and pick-up will be at Ellsworth-McAfee Park, Rt. 135/South St. in Northborough.
Participants should bring lunch and water, and should dress for action and appropriately
for the weather. Please apply sunscreen before coming!
Register as a team (6 max) or as an individual.
