This two-night, three-day backpacking trip will provide campers an opportunity to challenge themselves and enjoy the beauty, serenity and fun of being out in the wilderness. Campers will learn how to prepare and pack for a backpacking trip, the 6 W’s of preparing for any outdoor trip, map reading and Leave No Trace principles.
Campers will practice leadership skills by taking on different jobs with a teammate including L.O.D. (Leader of the Day), cook team, tarp team, and water team. We will pass the time on the trail playing games and enjoy time by the fire singing and telling stories. Summer memories are made in the backcountry that last forever!
We will meet on Sunday afternoon to get to know each other, check packs and divide up group gear. Our backpacking trip will be Monday-Wednesday. On Thursday we will provide a special opportunity to go kayaking with Steve Gibons, our fabulous kayaking guide.
