Cumberland Trail BreakAway

The Cumberland Trail Conference BreakAway program will happen again this year from February 26th through March 31st. Volunteers are needed to help with trail construction and maintenance, and help in the kitchen. Base camp for this year's program will be at the Dogwood Lodge near Soddy-Daisy, TN.

BreakAway is an Alternative Spring Break program hosted by the Tennessee Trails Association (TTA) and Cumberland Trail Conference (CTC). College students from across the country pay their own way to come to Tennessee to work on the Cumberland Trail along with TTA/CTC volunteers. Students and volunteers stay in East Tennessee and participate in trail building/maintenance for a week. BreakAway also provides for educational opportunities about the environment, history, geology, flora and fauna along the Cumberland Trail. Each college is limited to a maximum of 12 participants for this program. BreakAway participants must be affiliated with a BreakAway sanctioned school and have a site leader present.

For non-student volunteers requiring lodging/meals and who are not TTA or CTC members a $25/night fee is charged. Please contact the CTC to register for this event. For more information, email Tony Hook or call 931-456-6259.
