Our weeklong backpacking programs will bring campers through some of the last remaining low-elevation old-growth forests in Oregon, with daily travel averaging 4-6 miles. Campers will learn wilderness first aid, camp cooking, navigation, and Leave No Trace practices, along with on-the-trail lessons in forest and stream ecology based on the campers' own observations and inquiries.
Our Back to Basics camps for 10-12 year olds are the perfect introduction to backpacking. Camps for 12-15 year olds will travel farther and offer more challenges, including two opportunities for half-day rafting trips with eNRG Kayaking. Our Bull of the Woods Extended Expedition for 16-18 year olds offers even more time out on the trail, including leadership opportunities as each camper becomes 'leader of the day.
