Intro to Camping
On this three-day adventure, students will begin to learn backcountry travel and camping skills, all while enjoying the rewards of hiking and the thrills of 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. This course is designed to introduce the beginner to outdoor recreation and camping and to enhance skills already learned.
