Waterway Work Trips

Going on an NFCT Waterway Work Trip (WWT) is a terrific way to get involved with our organization and to meet other people with similar interests. Waterway Work Trips are weekend outings along the trail during which volunteers work with staff on projects, such as improving portage trails and campsites. Work trip registration fees are $63.75 for members and $75 for nonmembers except for the Sloping Falls Access and Nulhegan Huts and Trails trips. Those trips are free. The fee for the other trip is to cover food costs. Meals include Friday dinner, all Saturday meals, and Sunday breakfast. Free camping is arranged near work sites, and there is also time built into the weekend for paddling.

Below is a schedule of work trips scheduled for this summer (2017).
