In late March, students from Kroka Expeditions arrive at NorthWoods after skiing nearly 300 miles along the Catamount Trail. They set up camp at NorthWoods for three weeks, learning about the forest, crafting brown ash pack baskets, and preparing for their return sojourn home. This year, they’ll travel a new route, west through Vermont via waterways, and adding a bicycle tour to complete the 600-mile plus journey through New England. Whether you know a teenager who would thrive in this educational setting, or just want to see it for yourself, come join the students as they share images, stories and lessons learned on this incredible journey.
