Gear up for adventure! Learn the basics of backpacking including essential gear and how to pack it. Practice building a fire, an impromptu shelter and plotting a course on a topographical map. Take a trip to Hawk Mountain to test out your new skills on the Appalachian Trail. Camp along the mountain ridge and wake up to glorious mountain views. This trip is suitable for beginners. Campers will need basic gear such as a sleeping bag and hiking backpack (items can be rented from local retailers; details available). 

Are you ready for adventure? These teen camps are designed to challenge campers with awesome outdoor experiences. Campers will spend their week learning the skills necessary to survive in the wilds. This includes fire safety, food preparation, orienteering, packing, all while learning to work in a group and plan a trip. On Thursday, the team will embark on an overnight adventure to explore interesting new environments and to put their camping skills to the test! Campers will walk away from this week with newfound confidence and strong friendships. Camp hours are 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., with the exception of the Thursday to Friday overnight.  Dinner and breakfast are provided during overnights.  Campers should bring a mid-morning snack, a packed lunch and a water bottle. Members: $400 per week; Non-members: $450 per week
