Please read through the following frequently asked questions and answers. These will help you prepare for the camp and get a better understanding of what to expect. Thanks!
What time does the program begin and end each day?We will meet at 8AM at our shop in Bartlett, NH. We will spend most of the day outdoors. Each day will conclude at 4PM.
What gear is needed for Summer Camp?Depending on the adventure for the day, certain gear will be required. We can supply just about any piece of gear that is needed at no cost to you. We ask that each camper arrives with proper clothing for outdoor activities and a 30L-35L backpack that is meant for hiking or climbing. A change of clothes for after the adventure (such as waterfall rappelling) is a good idea. Sturdy shoes or hiking boots are preferred (no sandals). Sunscreen and bug spray will be needed.
What makes this camp different?Our adventure camp includes high-end experiences. We have never seen a summer camp offer waterfall rappelling, that's for sure. On top of this, our guides have years of experience running these adventure with an impeccable safety record. Every 4 campers has their own guide, so you can be sure your child is receiving personal attention and getting the most out of each day.

Do you offer lodging?Lodging is not included in this camp. We do have a hostel-style bunkhouse on-site where campers can stay if going home each day is not practical. We have an innkeeper who lives on-site. The bunkhouse would be an additional fee ($30/person/night). There are restaurants close-by.
Do the campers need transportation?Our guides will drive the campers to and from the trailheads. The drive is usually under 30 minutes.
How many people are in a group?We offer a maximum ratio of 4 clients per guide for this camp.

GENERAL POLICIESNEMs Adventure itineraries are subject to change or be adjusted based on a number of factors. These include, but are not limited to, route conditions, weather, terrain, group dynamics and many other factors. NEM has complete discretion to change plans to accommodate any of these or other factors, including the discretion to change program schedule or itinerary, and change guides or staff, as necessary for the proper and safe conduct of the program. We reserve the right to cancel any program due to inadequate signups, weather or route conditions. In such a case, an NEM credit for the full value is given; however, NEM cannot be responsible for any additional expenses incurred in preparing for the program (i.e., airline tickets, equipment purchase or rental, hotel reservations). NEM reserves the right to dismiss the Participant from a trip at any time if NEM determines, in its sole discretion, that the Participant is not physically, technically, or psychologically prepared for or capable of participating in the program. This includes being under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
SUMMIT ATTEMPTNortheast Mountaineering cannot guarantee that you will reach the summit or complete the objective you have signed up for. Weather, route conditions, your own abilities or the abilities of others may create circumstances that make an ascent unsafe, and you or your entire party will have to turn around without reaching the summit. Your program fee entitles you to one mountain experience on your specified dates.
MINIMUM REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTSMost of our programs do not have a minimum enrollment. If you are the only one registered, it will likely become a private outing. For our Waterfall Rappelling adventure, we must have at least 50% enrollment (3 people) to run the adventure. In the event of low-enrollment, we will reschedule your adventure to another date. If another date cannot be accommodated, you will receive an NEM credit.
RISK MANAGEMENTSafety is NEM’s number one priority. Our guides manage significant hazards inherent in the mountains but they cannot eliminate them. NEM guides draw from their wealth of experience and training to make sound decisions that maximize your experience without compromising the necessary margin of safety. Please clearly understand that mountaineering and all other mountain adventures are inherently hazardous sports. You are choosing to engage in an activity in which participants have been injured and killed. While those accidents are indeed infrequent, they may occur at any time and be out of our control. We ask that participants acknowledge the risk and hazards of these sports, and make their own choices about whether or not to engage in these activities.
