These special trips are designed to take the Coniston Spirit on the road, to help those less fortunate than ourselves.
Projects from previous summers include working on a Habitat for Humanity house in the mountains of West Virginia, working with the City Mission Society of Boston aiding our local homeless population and volunteering with Feeding America at a Food Bank in the mountains of Virginia.
On every trip, participants will volunteer for a week, and then participate in fun-filled activities special to that location, including whitewater rafting, hiking and travel.
Each winter, our staff identifies specific projects through need, availability and the ability to safely accommodate our participants. By identifying the location during the winter, camp staff are able to choose projects on an emerging basis. This could include helping victims of storms or other natural disasters. It is also our goal to have participants get a genuine experience, unique to each location.
Participants will be provided a certificate with hours served to fulfill high school graduation requirements along with the satisfaction and accomplishment that comes from reaching out to those in need.
Participants must be 15 or 16 and completed one year of high school.
Fee / tuition for each Service Trip is $1,700.
