Closed for 2020 - We look forward to seeing you in 2021!

Whether your family is up for a wild ride through the white water of Maine’s Rapid River, a more sedate float down New Hampshire’s scenic Androscoggin River, an evening pontoon cruise through the lake Umbagog wildlife preserve (where you might spy a moose, loons, osprey, bald eagles or even a black bear) or some quiet fishing along the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, ELC Outdoors has your adventure waiting. Prefer something non-water-related? How about a course where you navigate a series of ropes, wires, platforms and bridges 12 to 40 feet off the ground (yes, that’s Mount Washington in the distance)? Or rent a fat bike and hit the local trails. Available yurt and wall-tent lodging is perfect for families.

Family fun takes so many forms at Crab Apple Whitewater that you’ll be hard-pressed to know where to start. So let the river be your guide! Head down the Kennebec, zipping through easy rapids or opting for something more challenging. Some trips allow for floating or swimming, and they all feature fabulous Maine scenery. Back at the base camp, there’s overnight lodging, a pub, restaurant, heated showers and a swimming pool. At night, join in some spirited paintball fun, with several custom “fields” of play. Looking for something a little wilder? From May through August you can sign the family up for a starting-at-dusk moose safari, seeking the big beasts out in their native habitat.
