Grandparents and Grandchildren: Hiking and Paddling the Adirondacks

Relive your childhood as you explore the lakes, forests and mountains of the Adirondacks with your grandchild. Learn first-aid, canoeing, camping and fire-making skills. Identify the local fauna, bond with the natural world and with each other. Bring your grandchild to the wilderness of the Adirondack Park to hone your outdoor skills together while learning about the unique history and ecology of the largest park in the lower 48 states. Take on a different outdoor adventure each day and spend your evenings around the campfire soaking up the history and rustic atmosphere of Great Camp Sagamore, summer retreat of the Vanderbilt family. Go canoeing on Raquette Lake, paddle inflatable kayaks down the Moose River and encounter old ruins and wildlife on hikes in the forest.  Tailored towards grandchildren ages 10-13, this program is offered at different times during the summer.
