Explorers’ Camp just closed their first session of the summer, their oldest session; constituting the name “Explorers’ the Great.” These 15-18 year old campers are nothing short of amazing as they show us each year what it means to be a true explorer. Starting with a hiking trip that covered over 17 miles on or around the Appalachian Trail, they had the opportunity to experience Tinker Cliffs and McAfee’s Knob. After a quick rest and recoup night back at camp where they had the chance to catch a game of all-camp King Ball, they were back on the move with a canoe trip up the Potomac River that ended with a night in a hostel in Harpers Ferry. These young adults consistently rise to the challenges and relish the joys of embracing the natural world we live in, and we can’t wait for another adventure next summer!
