Advanced Trips

Growth Series

Northpoint Adventures advanced trips are designed for older participants, ages 14+, seeking a new level of adventure, challenge, and ultimately personal growth through summer wilderness tripping experiences.  Northpoint’s advanced trips build upon previously learned skills, and give participants hands-on experience with cooking, personal first aid, and map & compass navigational skills.  Participants are additionally empowered by group decision-making, ongoing discussion of overcoming challenges, and gaining deeper understanding of what a wilderness experience means on a personal level.  Ranging from 7 to 8 days in length, Northpoint’s advanced trips lead to personal growth and blaze the trail for a lifetime of adventuring.
