Teen Wilderness Trips

 


 

Wilderness Trips with Through The Trees

Our TTT staff are Registered Maine Guides, and our number one priority as Guides is to ensure a safe, transformational and FUN experience for all our participants.  All our Guides and Guide-in-Training are passionate about sharing their love of the outdoors and creating a meaningful community that supports teens in emotional intelligence, problem solving, communication skills, resilience, self-awareness, self-confidence and a love and respect for the earth. We support and encourage self-directed learning and hands-on, project-based activities as participants follow their unique strengths. Teens build self-awareness and resilience by incrementally pushing past comfort zones in a supportive community. All of our wilderness experience will foster teamwork, creative problem solving, communication and resilience. 

Through The Trees will provide a detailed gear lists prior to each trip.

Teen Wilderness trips are recommended for teens who are open to new things and are ready to step out of their comfort zone.

Wilderness trips will be held rain or shine.
