Out of Camp Trips

Depending on her skill level, a camper can sign up for paddling trips, a rock climbing trip, or a one to four-day backpacking trip. As a camper gains outdoor skills, she is encouraged to sign up for the many out-of-camp trips offered. For the past 10 summers, our campers have hiked a different portion of the Appalachian Trail. Our more experienced hikers are invited to take part in this four-day backpack adventure. In preparation for this trek, these hikers are taught proper trail techniques, including packing gear, packing and prepping food, basic first-aid and trail safety, and leave no trace principles. Camp eagerly awaits the hikers’ return, which always features trail tales in song! Safety is paramount, and our lead staff members are trained in the latest wilderness protocols to ensure a safe, fun and productive outing for every camper.
