Northland Adventure is a non-profit organization facilitating “the growth of individuals and organizations through adventure-based programming. It is our belief that the future of our world hinges upon the successful instruction of youth and adults in community involvement, global awareness, environmental sustainability, educational opportunity, and somatic healing.”

This year, that experiential education takes the form of a number of overnight camps and expeditions, such as a twenty-two day trek on Vermont’s Long Trail. Unfortunately, funding that Northland Adventure relied on fell through, putting future programs in jeopardy.

Now a fundraising campaign on Gofundme.com has launched to solicit donations to make up the shortfall. It’ll take $3580 “to keep the organization running at it’s current level,” but a minimum of $1660 for the summer 2012 slate of programs to go off as planned.

People wanting to contribute have two main options: a direct donation via Gofundme, which helps build Northland Adventure’s operating funds, or signing up for a program. There are still spaces available in various programs to be held this year.
