OUTPOST

Description

Outpost: Backpacking

Outpost is a special unit for campers that are excited to learn the art of backpacking and hike to the farthest edges of camp. Before heading out into the Namanu forest, Outpost campers will experience our dynamic challenge course, learn how to pack their backpacking bag, and sleep in the Balagan tree houses. From there, Outpost will head out on a multiday camping trip where campers and staff will work together to set up tents, utilize their surroundings, and cook in the outdoors. Outpost campers will also get the opportunity to go offsite for our rafting adventure day trip. Spaces are very limited as there will only be 2 sessions of Outpost offered this summer.

Good for Grades: 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th
