Registration Instructions

2017 Registration is now open! Financial assistance applications will be available in early January, 2017.

Outpost is for campers in grades 8-12 that want to spend more than half of their week out in the wilderness. Prior to their adventure out into the woods, Outpost campers will learn how to set up their tents, utilize their surroundings, develop basic outdoor cooking skills, and work as a team. Outpost campers will also get the opportunity to go offsite to enjoy rafting or hiking. When they are staying at Namanu, campers will sleep in the Balagan tree houses. Spaces are very limited as there will only be 2 sessions of Outpost offered for summer 2017.
