Thoreau-Wabanaki Wilderness Canoe Tours

Boothbay Register: As part of its year-long Centennial Celebration, Chewonki is offering teens ages 15-17 the opportunity to explore the historically important Wabanaki canoe routes that Henry David Thoreau traveled during his treks to Maine in 1857. Two co-ed trips are offered this summer, the first from June 23-July 14 and the second from July 19-August 10.

“The protected lands and waters of the Thoreau-Wabanaki Canoe Trail will forever provide remote canoe experiences for wilderness travelers while highlighting the important contributions of the Wabanaki who first traveled these waterways,” Greg Shute, director of outdoor programs at Chewonki said about the trip. “This is a trip of a lifetime for anyone interested in understanding the importance of Maine’s environmental and cultural legacies while enjoying adventure in the Maine outdoors.
