We traveled to the woods of Western Maine in late July for a weekend at Northern Outdoors, an all ages adventure resort. Located in The Forks, Northern Outdoors is best known for white water rafting adventures, but for our young crew (ages 9-up), we decided a self-guided paddle down the lower portion of the Kennebec River was the best option.

Visitors can choose from traditional camp sites, condos or rustic cabins like this one.

Float trips down the Kennebec begin in the afternoon, so our family had plenty of time to explore the area (more on our hike to Moxie Falls in a later post). The kids also enjoyed the pool that’s located on the grounds. CP#1 and #2, along with their cousin C, had a blast making up crazy jumps and playing in the water.

We had a lot to celebrate over the weekend: the end of the school year, Father’s Day, plus our friend and neighbor’s 40th birthday. To kick off the festivities, we took an afternoon sailing trip with the Portland Schooner Co. A group of us boarded the Bagheera—a 1920’s, wooden schooner that sails from Portland Harbor into the Casco Bay. The day was perfect for a sail. The sun was bright, the weather was warm, and we were all in good spirits.
