SPRING 2019 EXPEDITIONS

SunDog Outdoor Expeditions offers expedition-oriented after school programs for MidCoast Maine 5th-8th graders, focused on character development, environmental awareness, & technical skill development.

2-day Final Expedition!

 
 

WHERE THE MOUNTAINS MEET THE SEA! (5th & 6th grade) 

6 weeks of Rock Climbing, a service experience, and a multi-day expedition. Coastal Maine is a well known destination in New England for rock climbing. Climbers from around the East Coast flock to Camden, Acadia and nearby areas to experience the accessible climbing that Maine has to offer. Explore the local mountains with your SunDog team and learn how to rock climb with certified climbing guides. Learn the local hot spots while building skills and confidence.

Rock climbing is an amazing way to experience our natural landscape in Midcoast Maine but must be done safely and responsibly. The course, which will be taught in the field, will consist of 12 hands-on training sessions to ensure a safe, friendly and fun way to experience rock climbing.

This program starts to build the foundation of knowledge and skills that students will need to climb outdoors in a top rope setting. Equipment, belaying, anchors, rappelling, and climbing movement are all covered in detail. Build up to a special expedition and test your skills on the final overnight expedition.
