We Welcome Your Application to Join Us!

We build each of our groups with care, keeping the groups small (no more than twelve students), and paying close attention to age, grade, gender, and the mix of hometowns and schools. Our goal is to put together great groups — groups where nice kids thrive in a supportive, wholesome, and caring environment. Please note: availability as shown is based on students traveling without a friend; if your child is interested in traveling with a friend, please call our office for availability.

Maine Adventure

Hike, swim, and explore the beauty of Maine.

Summer in Maine is just about perfect, and Maine Adventure combines all of what we love about this beautiful part of the world.

Two weeks in Maine on the coast and in the mountains — summer doesn’t get any better. And when you consider all that we’re going to do — hiking, canoeing, swimming, rock climbing, and exploring — and where we’re going to do it — Portland, Camden, Acadia, and Maine’s lakes and mountains — well, it might just be the perfect way to spend two weeks of your summer.

"This trip was the best two weeks of my summer. I made new friends, hiked amazing mountains, swam in fresh lakes and oceans, and had the time of my life. I didn't want to go home! The trip gave me a better vision for nature and a place to be myself!"



"Maine Adventure exceeded our expectations! My daughter was a beginner hiker and said the experience was just amazing. Leaders were nurturing, knowledgeable and relatable. "
