Advanced Backpacking

Campers will travel between 3 and 8 miles per day through montane and subalpine forests in the White River National Forest carrying all necessary camping gear and food. Campers will learn backcountry cooking, travel and camping skills and learn about the local wildlife and ecology, as well as focus on outdoor leadership skills for the duration of the trip while camping at a variety of backcountry sites. Depending on the group and weather, youth may have an opportunity to try a peak ascent on one of the peaks in the area. Locations include the Holy Cross Wilderness Area (Missouri Lake and Fancy Lakes) or the Flat Tops Wilderness Area (Turret Creek).
