Camp Description

Camp Augusta’s Wilderness Trips program offers a variety of experiences that take campers into wild settings beyond the bounds of our residential site. Each trip has between 4 and 8 campers and is led by at least 2 wilderness-trained Camp Augusta staff members. We have found that the wilderness trip groups often form very strong bonds within their small close-knit communities while in the wilderness; a result of experiencing many exciting moments and challenges together. 

From canoeing down the Sacramento River to rock-climbing in Desolation Wilderness, campers are likely to find a Wilderness Trip which matches their interest and desired challenge. Each one of our expeditions focuses on providing campers with a genuine wilderness experience in which they can develop relevant leadership skills while honing their awareness of both environmental issues and personal safety. Campers will gain skills and knowledge that give them confidence in wilderness settings, whether on flat ground or towering rock, on two wheels or four hooves. Classic Camp Augusta touches of Wish, Wonder, and Surprise will round out the journey.
