The mountains are calling

…and we must go!

Backyard Basecamp is far more than a summer adventure program. Our trips take 6th - 12th graders camping, hiking, and backpacking on two to three week-long trips around the world. Students face challenges where teamwork and tenacity are essential. You will learn wilderness skills, environmental protection, and grow resilience, empathy, and self-respect. You child will experience an unforgettable summer that is simple, unplugged, and close to nature.

Backyard Basecamp maintains a small adventure groups and ensures guides are highly trained and certified. Our programs are designed for Basecampers to experience year after year - deepening the bond of our community and evolving your child’s skills as a mountaineer as they grow.
