Advanced Backpacking

Campers will travel through montane and subalpine forests, flower-filled high alpine meadows and over rocky ridgelines, traveling between 3 and 8 miles per day carrying all necessary camping gear and food. Campers will learn backcountry cooking, travel and camping skills and also learn about local wildlife and ecology, as well as focus on outdoor leadership skills 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).
