The Cody Adventures program is a progressive series of week-long adventure trips across the White Mountains, Acadia National Park, the Maine seacoast, and Nova Scotia. The program serves as a capstone experience following each two or four-week session at Camp Cody. It’s a terrific way for campers to explore New England (and Canada) alongside bunkmates from their previous session.
Campers age twelve through seventeen, who have just completed a two or four-week session, at Camp Cody are eligible to participate in the program. It is also offered as a standalone program to first-time campers.
The week-long trips consist of various outdoor activities (hiking, ocean kayaking, rock climbing, mountain biking, surfing, etc) paired with sightseeing and our never-ending quest for the best ice cream shop in New England.
While a good amount of time is spent outdoors, these trips are intentionally designed to accommodate all members of our camp community and strike a happy middle ground between Camp Cody and a traditional teen tour. You don’t need to be Bear Grylls but it helps if you like lobster bakes!
The White Mountain Journey, Ages 12-13
Fun, friendships and adventure await our Cody mountain explorers! This program caters to our younger teens excited for a week of hiking, biking and canoeing along the Appalachian Trail through the White Mountains.
Campers will explore Franconia Notch State Park by bike and then hike in the Presidential Mountains. They will also canoe the Saco River or raft the Androscoggin River.
Acadia Exploration, Age 14
Acadia, one of the most spectacular National Parks in North America, awaits our Cody explorers. Campers will sightsee in Bar Harbor, hike, bike, kayak and explore Acadia on land and water. They will venture across rocky shorelines, go tidepooling and ocean kayaking, climb Cadillac Mountain, bike around the island, camp out, enjoy lobster bakes and sleep under the stars.
Seacoast Odyssey, Age 15
Camp Cody’s seacoast explorers will be sightseeing in Portland, Camden and Acadia. Campers will scout rocky coves, spectacular shorelines and Maine’s coastal islands while ocean kayaking, hiking, biking, swimming and tidepooling in this beautiful region.
Destination Nova Scotia, Age 16
The ultimate destination for Cody’s explorers lays across the border in Nova Scotia — a place of spectacular scenery, charming towns, villages and farms surrounded by rocky coves and breathtaking seascapes. Through sightseeing, hiking, biking, kayaking and whale watching, campers will explore this beautiful maritime region.
We will visit Lunenberg and explore Mahone Bay by kayak. After sightseeing in Halifax, campers will hike and swim in Kejimkujik National Park. This tremendous expedition ends with a ferry ride back to Portland, Maine.
