1-Week Adventures

Teen Trips

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 sixteen, 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!


Seacoast/Acadia Exploration, Age 12-16

Camp Cody’s seacoast explorers will be sightseeing in Portland, Camden and Acadia National Park. Campers will scout rocky coves, spectacular shorelines and Maine’s coastal islands while ocean kayaking, hiking, biking, swimming and tidepooling, enjoy lobster bakes and sleep under the stars.

Destination Nova Scotia, Age 12-16

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. *All campers will need a valid passport or visa for this trip.
