Outdoor Adventure
Session 1: June 25-30, 2023 | High School Leadership | Joe Crane Lake
Session 2: July 23-28, 2023 | Middle & High School | Chittenden Lake

Outdoor Adventure is a highly active week that includes on- and off-site backpacking, camping, and backcountry skill building and is designed for campers who want to learn and grow through total immersion in nature. Session 1 will be geared toward high school students that are seeking more challenge and leadership development in the wilderness. This session will not require more athleticism, per se, but it may require more perseverance and ownership on the part of the students. Session 2 will provide an opportunity for middle and high school students at all backpacking levels to learn and grow as outdoor adventurers. See important notes below.

Because Session 1 will require a higher level of responsibility and leadership, we are asking each camper to fill out a brief application, which can be accessed HERE. Please fill out the application as soon as possible upon registering for camp. One of our guides will be in touch via phone after your application has been submitted. We can't wait for a transformational week with you!
