Adventure Program

"Barton is my daughter’s home away from home. Her summer would not be complete without it."

Together with staff who know what making it to the top of a mountain can do for the soul, campers are inspired and empowered to confront their fears, heights, waves, self doubts and rainstorms, all while managing diabetes. "If [you] can tackle a vertical granite wall, [you] can do anything." (Morgan age 16, NY)  Embark upon high adventure rock climbing, ride white water rapids, and challenge your comfort zone while summiting some of the highest peaks in New England.

During our Adventure Program, led by certified guides and diabetes professionals, campers experience a voyage of self-discovery and adventure. Daring teenagers will face both physical and mental challenges and work as a team as they bushwhack their way to both group and personal success.

The Barton Adventure Program offers more than just a memorable experience, it helps change lives!
