Appalachian Mountains Club’s Youth Mountain Adventure Program

We are very excited and eager about our future trip to Joe Dodge Lodge in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.  To help better prepare ourselves for the trip, we have gone over expectations, missions, and checklists to prepare ourselves for the trip. We are staying for three days and two nights at the AMC’s Joe Dodge Lodge. For those of you who are wondering, we do have safety precautions, the AMC. Participants are expected to work with staff to reduce risks and make the experience successful for all. The AMC staff is dedicated, energetic, and talented leaders experience in working with youth.

The Emerald Necklace Conservancy youth members received an important information sheet including all the details of the trip along with important required personal information. The sheet describes activities such as skiing, snowshoeing and hiking. The response to these activities has been very different between the youth members from “UGH!” to “I can’t wait.” They also recommend that we eat healthy food. Another big point is that they forbid the usage of electronics. This immediately drew out some complaints but we were overall okay with it, we understood. This upcoming trip to the White Mountains is hopefully going to be something we all never forget.
