Intro to Backpacking
July 16-18, 2021
Ages 11-14

Backpacking is one of the most rewarding and confidence boosting activities, but can be a daunting undertaking for many experienced, and inexperienced, hikers alike. This introductory camp will teach campers all the skills, tips, and tricks they need to be successful in the backcountry, and we will put those new skills to test on a one-night backpacking trip! Reserve a spot quickly before this popular camp fills up!

*Routes are subject to change due to safety/accessibility limitations. Routes will be discussed with parents at the time of check-in July 16th.

What’s Included in your Trip Fee:

  • All meals, lodging, and transportation during camp.

Friday July 16th: 10:00AM check-in at our Big Creek Outdoor Education Center

Sunday July 18th: 2:00PM check-out from our Big Creek Outdoor Education Center

**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.

We hope to see you soon!
