Join other families for a weekend in beautiful Crawford Notch, NH! AMC Boston Family Outings has reserved the Shapleigh Bunkhouse (next to the Highland Center) for Friday and Saturday nights after Thanksgiving. Great hiking, socializing, and fun with the family. Late fall hiking is awesome with views unobstructed by leaves, cool temperatures, and no bugs! Hikes will be designed to fit the ages and interests of the kids including a hike up Mt. Willard (3.2 miles RT) with gorgeous views down into Crawford Notch ….a classic "big bang for your buck" hike.

We will stay at the 16-bed Shapleigh Bunkhouse which is coed, heated, and includes bathrooms/showers, linens, and a common area. Friday night dinner will be prepared by the group while Saturday night we will dine next door at the Highland Center, enjoying hearty, home-cooked meals. Saturday and Sunday breakfasts will also be buffet style next door at the Highland Center. Lunch fixings Saturday are included as well.

And, there is more, the Highland Center has a well-stocked gear room. As a participant on this trip you can borrow the items you need for this trip at no charge OR if you want to check out new or different gear you are welcome. Check out what you can borrow:
