**Please let us know as soon as possible if your child has any special requirements (dietary, medical, physical, etc.) so we may meet their needs. You may send snacks with your child, but all food must be stored in special bins in the Mess Hall to avoid any curious critters visiting our bunkhouses.
Campers will spend time exploring a variety of trails in the Flathead National Forest. We will stop often to learn about the amazing natural history of the area. All campers will be taught trail etiquette, how to stay hydrated, and Leave No Trace principles.
