Adirondack Experience


Pok-O-MacCready’s famous wilderness program kicked off Tuesday, with every boy assigned to a hike in the Adirondacks.  For some, it was a first ever taste of the beautiful northern New 628dayhike_12York wilderness.

“It was really good,” said Martin, from France, who was on the climb up Mt. Pop-O-Moonshine.  “It was not too hard  – so-so – and I liked the view.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Dan M, a camper in senior section, was on the trip up Algonquin, the second highest peak in the state.  Dan is already an Adirondack 46er, and has already climbed half of them again but “I’m not really thinking about the rounds; I just like hiking.

Long-time camper John L, got his first taste of taking part in a hike with the wilderness-centric Advanced Section.  “Uh, I mean, we were kind of more on our own,” said John of the experience.  “We were learning things more than hiking.  It was kinda cool.”
