What's Happening at Waypoint Adventure

SITES

Trails getting crowded? Try ours! We contacted the interactive map service, MapMe.com, and explained that we wanted to put out a resource that would help our community get outside with notes about trail types, accessibility, parking, and more, and they donated a free membership due to the circumstances! We’re so grateful to partner with a company that believes in the power of the outdoors and the importance of sharing resources during this time! Thank you MapMe​!

Carter School Partnership

At Waypoint Adventure, we talk about the importance of community all the time. There is no better example of this than on our programs with the Carter School. The Carter School is a Boston Public School high school for students with both severe, intensive disabilities and complex health needs. Carter students and their families participated in hiking and kayaking programs last spring. Three communities came together to make these programs possible: the Carter School, the Snowden International School, and Waypoint Adventure. All Carter students and their families were given the chance to participate on a program in the Blue Hills

I honestly don’t know where to begin. My mind
