Backpacking camp (advanced)

Canceled due to COVID restrictions. We will run this camp next year!

Explore the wilderness with friends and fun!`

Are you an experienced backpacker? Then this is the camp for you! We’re going deep into the forests of Olympic National Park—having a great time with our new friends while enjoying the beauty of nature. We’ll use a campground as our staging area to pack up, and then we’ll head off for 3 nights in the wilderness, enjoying some of the most gorgeous scenery with some of the best people around! If you like backpacking, you definitely don’t want to miss this camp, which will be the highlight of your summer!

This camp is designed to be safe, as well. It is completely outdoors, decreasing transmissibility. We will be sleeping outside at campsites. Each camper has their own tent, unless they want to share with a same-sex sibling. We will use a small-group pod system, where the whole group is only 10 people. Participants and family are screened before coming in, to ensure that the new “bubble” starts out and stays safe. For more extensive information about our safety precautions, see our “Parent Information” page.

Let’s Go to Camp!
