This will be an introduction to backpacking for older teens who want to learn and hone their wilderness skills as they gain more backpacking experience. This can be a perfect next step for those who have participated in our original Otter Clan trip or those who want to hike a couple more miles for the week. The orientation meeting for this trip is on June 13th. This is an opportunity for campers to meet their instructors, each other, and to learn about the adventure they are about to take! Campers can bring their gear to get it checked and fitted and can ask any questions they may have. This summer we are using chartered vans to bring staff, campers, and gear to our backpacking locations. Vans will leave Leigh Farm Park on the Monday morning of the trip and will return Friday. Arrival time on Friday will depend on when the group arrives at their final hiking location.
