The Passy Expedition
July 6 - july 10
Cost: $ 495
No need for a long drive-- Camp Forest is within a stone's throw of a perfect place for river canoeing, and we're excited to offer this popular camp again! Spend 5 days and 4 nights adventuring with a team of experienced paddlers and survivalists, combining the best of both worlds of primitive skills and backcountry canoeing. Learn whitewater canoe techniques and forage for food off the land for your supper as we explore our the Passagassawakeag River. The best part about this camp is that once you know where to go, you can return any time to your favorite spots on the water with your friends or family! End the week with a triumphant entry under the bridge into Belfast Harbor, and meet up with others for the Harbor Plant Walk before heading home. You'll go home full of photos, stories and memories that will last a lifetime! Ages 11 and up!
During this expedition, skills for the Osprey, Eagle, Beaver and Maine Woodsman will be learned.

The Watersheds Expedition
August 24 - 28
Cost: $ 495
Join us for this wonderful expedition! We'll spend five whole days exploring the watersheds of the Passagassawaukeg River and the Marsh Stream in Brooks, Maine. This expedition begins at Camp Forest on Monday morning, where we'll learn how to use our gear and pack up for the expedition. After practicing with the gear and packing it all up, we set off on our first hike to Half Moon Pond to set up a comfortable primitive campsite and canoe and fish on the pond. We can visit our friends the beavers, muskrats, eagles, and fox. Who knows what you'll catch sight of!? From there we will hike up a mountain where we can see the entire Passagassawaukeag watershed from Brooks to Belfast Bay and see sail boats on the harbor. From there we will travel to the Marsh Stream watershed. We'll end the week traveling down the Marsh River to the Brooks Park. During this expedition, skills for the Osprey, Eagle, Beaver and Maine Woodsman will be learned. If you're ready for an amazing wilderness camping experience, this expedition is for you!
