our first Teen Base Camp Crew of the season was a great success. We did not have the typical crew size, because many schools were still in session in the northeast. Never the less, this crew was productive and had a great time.
They spent most of their week working on the great Gulf Trail in the Great Gulf Wilderness Area. The crew was working on installing rock stepping stones and drainage structures along the trail. The conclusion to their week with a day project working above tree-line on Mt. Washington. The crew constructed cairns that mark the trail and built up the scree walls along the trail. Each day ended with a quick swim, a great meal and and comfortable bunks back at Camp Dodge.
We have two more Teen Base Camp Crews scheduled this summer all with equally exciting projects. Thanks to these volunteers for all of their efforts and we hope to see you again.
