This program will introduce our Mountain Trekkers to backpacking, beginning rock climbing, and caving, with the opportunity to spend the night in the cave experiencing total darkness! We’ll backpack out to the high falls of Seneca Creek where we will set up a basecamp.
At our base at the high falls we’ll spend ample time honing our craft and trying new things; from survival skills to nature art with opportunities to swim and relax along the way. The final day of the program we will travel to a nearby rock outcropping where we will meet a climbing guide for an introduction to top rope climbing and rappelling.
The Mountain Stewards [Mountain Trekkers] camp is a wonderful, fun, confidence and skill building experience every kid should go through! — Sandy Frank
This camp builds a safe and supportive environment around your child through group-strengthening activities, evening assessments and affirmations, and increasing their understanding of the wild world around them. Within this support structure each child is able to grow more comfortable within the woods, the group and their own self. A camper will often find the confidence to spend a night in the cave or to climb higher than he thought he could.
