“The guides at the Enriched Learning Center facilitated a day of white water rafting on the Androscoggin River for 2 of our 12-13 year old groups over the summer of 2012. Instructors and participants both raved in regards to this day, citing it as the favorite activity of the week. AMC staff also noted how well the guides from ELC worked with the teenage population and how the day was the spark for most of the group bonding and development.”
