Have you ever wanted to go on an investigation for Bigfoot? DUH. Wondered what it takes to build a yacht? Of course! Dreamed of kayaking the Scarborough Marsh? Absolutely.
Have you ever wondered how much you could explore in just a day? Well with Kenn-X-Peditions, participants will surely find out!
These camps will take you on adventures that will stick with you for a lifetime!

Each week we will traverse the coast, mountains, forests, and cities in pursuit of unique and wonderful parts of Maine based on that week's theme.
