Need Financial Aid? Click here.

Our financial aid philosophy is take what you need and give what you can. We recognize that there are economic hardships, and we want to be accessible to all, so we ask that you pay whatever it is that you can.

The more you can pay, the more children we are able to extend aid to. Before you request financial aid we ask families to consider if there are family members or friends who might help provide a scholarship to your family for this program.

While nobody has ever been turned away for lack of funds, our ability to accommodate financial aid requests rests on the strength of our program enrollment and the generosity of the individuals, businesses and foundations that partner with Wild Earth to make financial aid possible.

We're in this together! Many of us are stretching ourselves to make sure that cost doesn't get in the way of anyone playing, exploring and learning in nature.

Ropes: 4-Day Canoe Adventure for High School Teens

Ready for adventure?

Join a crew of intrepid High School students and Wild Earth’s stellar instructors for a 3-night, 4-day canoeing/hiking trek through the Adirondacks.

When I think of an experience that opened my eyes to the enormity of the outdoors, and also provided me with access to some of nature’s most remote splendor, I think of canoe camping deep in the remote St Regis Canoe Wilderness in the Adirondacks.

Paddling from one pond to another, carrying everything needed for camp, trail, and my time on the water. These trips are challenging, yet so deeply rewarding. Carrying your vessel, your shelter, food, tools and clothing, to the next lake. Then propelling your canoe through the only designated canoe wilderness in New York. The St Regis Canoe Wilderness will challenge your body, and the way you think about your relationship with nature. When you look upon, and travel through these great expanses of untrammeled forest, and pristine waters you will feel a sense of timeless wonder, and when you see the night sky you will be transported to another world altogether. 

20 combined miles: Canoeing & Portaging (carrying your canoe and supplies between bodies of water)

Our route will take us through 10 lakes and ponds, with around 7 miles of hiking or portage, and a little over 13 miles of paddling. This journey is just a taste of what canoe camping can be. Many canoe campers will spend 3 weeks or more on long routes. Like ripples on the water this journey will awaken a whole new world of possibilities.

The trip will be lead by Will Soter. Will is a NYS DEC Licensed Guide, and has been guiding full time for 8 years. He is trained as a Wilderness First Responder and has worked in a variety of roles to help people of all ages feel comfortable, and confident exploring the world outdoors. Most of all, Will enjoys sharing his vast knowledge of the natural world, and passion for adventure.

Those who participate in this journey will learn what it takes to cover large distances, with nothing but a well-formed plan and what they can carry on their back (and in their canoe.) We look forward to sharing this journey with you and are excited to create lasting, memories with you, as you learn the skills that will prepare you for a life full of adventures.
