From the ‘Hood to the Woods

Trekkers offers one trip a year where students from our sister organization (Urban Trekkers located in Camden, New Jersey) come to Maine for a cultural awareness expedition. Students participate in activities that promote diversity acceptance and awareness. Students also go canoeing, kayaking, hiking, and so much more. Trekkers offers this program to our high school Trekkers.
