Adventure Seekers is for kids who are incredibly passionate about spending time with their friends at Sleep Away Camp every year, but are also looking for a little more adventure. This program is designed to give campers a new and exciting experience outside of The Bangor YMCA Wilderness Center at Camp Jordan while allowing them to maintain the friendships they have developed over the years.

 

The Adventure Seekers Program is a wilderness expedition program for kids and teens looking for an exciting, elevated camp experience. Our various expeditions may incorporate biking, rock climbing, backpacking, paddling, whitewater rafting, wilderness survival and more, on trips specially designed for different ages and abilities. Adventure Seekers will explore the best and most iconic parts of the Maine wilderness; from all of Maine's beautiful lakes to the North Maine Woods all the way down to the rugged coastline of Downeast Maine, and on south to the beautiful Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park.
