The Glens Falls Chapter of the Adirondack Mountain Club is seeking applicants in the 11 to 17 age group to sponsor for the upcoming 2020 season. The Chapter pays the $350 fee for the selected youths to spend a week at either of the DEC’s environmental camps, Camp Colby near Saranac Lake or Pack Forest just above Warrensburg.
For those in the older range who prefer a more rugged experience, which includes five days out in the woods with hands-on experience learning the ins and outs of trail maintenance, ADK’s headquarters offers its own Teen Trail program. The chapter pays the $285 fee for the Teen Trails program. Applicants here will have a choice of several possible locations, which in the past included the High Peaks Area, portions of the Northville-Placid Trail and the Lake George area, though several others fall into
consideration dependent upon need.
