This two-night, three-day backpacking trip will provide campers an opportunity to challenge themselves and enjoy the beauty, serenity and fun of being in the wilderness. Campers will learn how to prepare and pack for a backpacking trip, the 6 W’s, map reading and Leave No Trace principles. Campers will practice leadership skills by taking on different jobs during our trip, including L.O.D. (Leader of the Day), cook team, and water team. We will play games, enjoy campfires together and summiting Wheeler Peak. This is a huge accomplishment, confidence booster, and the stuff of lifelong memories. Campers will need their own backpacking pack and tent.
