Negus Mountain Traverse
Ages: 11 - 13
Join us on this exciting expedition of white water paddling, rock climbing and exploring the rugged canyons of the Upper Deerfield River Valley. This introductory multi-element adventure will begin by rafting down class II and III rapids on the Deerfield River as we learn to paddle, read the river, and practice swimming in white water. The next day we will summit Negus Mountain. From here we will hike across the plateau before descending a steep ravine to a Tyrolean traverse across the river. Throughout, we will sing songs, roast bread-on-a-stick, and tell stories around the camp fire cultivating a strong community of explorers.
Students should be comfortable swimmers, and be physically fit to carry an overnight backpack up and back down the mountain with a smile!
