Intro to Camping
Students will begin to learn backcountry travel and camping skills while hiking and rock climbing. With the comfort of a stationary base camp, youth will spend two nights camping in the White River National Forest, learning what it takes to sleep in the woods. After days out recreating, they’ll return to camp for nights of stargazing and storytelling. Each day, young explorers will learn the skills they need to move across the landscape, find their way and sleep in safety. From the basics of camp setup to outdoor cooking to teambuilding to playing in wilderness to building friendships, this multi-day course allows youth to become pioneers in their pursuits as outdoor enthusiasts.
