City families who fancy hiking and learning outdoor skills will dig this camp in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. These alfresco adventures range from the “Wee Wanderers” level, for families with two- to five-year-olds, to above–tree line, hut-to-hut hikes for families with kids nine and up. Activities include hiking and paddle excursions, map and compass skills, and rescue dog demos. Families stay in AMC’s lodges (private room, private bath) or high mountain huts (bunks). Meals typically consist of a breakfast buffet, a trail lunch and a sit-down family-style dinner with at least one kid-friendly option. Camps run June 27–Aug 24, and last 2–6 days. Family membership $75; $267–$614 per person, teens ages 13–17 $150–$475 and children ages 12 and under $67–$362, depending on program.
