Mowglis Alumni Trip: Belle Island Campout
For many Mowglis alumni, their last evening on Belle Island was as a camper. This is your chance to relive a staple of the Mowglis trip program.
Day 1: We’ll be departing from Mowglis via canoe in the early afternoon and paddling across the lake to Belle Island to set up camp. That evening, we’ll be grilling out and enjoying an evening beneath the stars.
Day 2: The day will start early with breakfast, after which we’ll head into Wellington State Park for a hike up the Elwell Trail. Don’t want to hike? Then the sandy beaches at Wellington are calling your name! We’ll spend the day hiking, exploring and lounging, soaking up the remaining sun of the NH summer. We’ll head back to the island for dinner and a campfire.
Day 3: Breakfast and breaking camp. For those that have time, we can extend our paddle home via the Cockermouth River, then back to camp to unload our gear.
Notes: You don’t have to attend all three days of the campout, but barring physical limitations, you will be expected to paddle both to and from the island. We will have access to the motorboat to move gear and in the event of an emergency. Mowglis can provide some gear, but the more of your own you can bring, the better. Food and drink are provided, with Mowglis staff handling the cooking. A full packing list is available on our website at www.mowglis.org/events.
Price: $35 (one day) or $50 (whole weekend) per person.
