TOP Summer Update

Due to the current covid-19 health crisis, Thetford Academy has made the final decision to postpone TOP Summer programming scheduled for June and July of 2020.

Both the rock climbing and backpacking trips have been cancelled, with the goal of resuming these option in 2021.

The Connecticut River canoe trip, the advanced canoe trip, and the trail crew will run, but the dates, the maximum number of participants, and the routes have changed to meet social distancing guidelines. The updated dates and locations are:

  • Connecticut River canoe trip, July 27th – August 1st
  • Advanced canoe trip (now on the upper CT River), Aug 3rd-11th
  • Trail Crew, August 17th – August 20th
