On Friday evening gather to meet your team of fellow climbers, learn more about BCPP and share a delicious dinner at Joe Dodge Lodge in Pinkham Notch, New Hampshire.
On Saturday morning meet for a hearty breakfast buffet before gathering into small groups for a staggered start up the trail*. You will be provided with a bag lunch to eat along the way or at the summit. You will then hike down to the Lake of the Clouds mountain hut where you can spread your sleeping bag on a comfy bunk. Dinner at the hut is cooked for you by the enthusiastic hut crew.
Sunday morning breakfast will be followed by a memorable prayer flag ceremony by one of the lakes at the top of Mt. Washington. This moving ceremony will honor and remember all those who been diagnosed with cancer or have passed due to it's heartbreaking effects. Following the ceremony, you will join with your assigned hiking groups to begin the descent back to the Joe Dodge Lodge for snacks and champagne to celebrate and say farewell to the friends you have made along the way.
*A shorter route is available for those who choose not to summit and there is an option to drive to the summit and hike down to the hut.
If you're unable to hike, please support BCPP by donating to a hiker!
