A wonderful first expedition, the Beaver Expedition offers five days of exploring the headwaters of the Passagassawaukeg River in Brooks, Maine. The expedition begins at Camp Forest on Monday morning. After packing all the necessary gear and practicing with it a bit, we hike to Half Moon Pond and set up a primitive campsite. The week is spent exploring, fishing, canoeing, and visiting the beaver. A hike to the top of the mountain reveals a surprise. This expedition is open to all campers who are ready for a wilderness camping experience.
