Grades 8 & 9

Our most adventurous Basecampers will encounter new frontiers - trekking in the Appalachian mountains. With experienced guides leading the way, these campers will further their wilderness survival skills and learn first aid basics. Endurance is found and simplicity is practiced over 75 miles of varying terrain for our 10 day high adventure hike.

Trailblazers will meet in Prospect Park in New York City for the first three days of camp (Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday) Here, they will brush up on outdoor skills, prepare packs, plan meals for the backcountry, and participate in team building.
