This is a camping experience for middle school and high school aged boys and will require a signed permission slip from a parent. A recommendation letter from a teacher will make you more competitive for the program. We will be providing you with these forms. The hiking is light to moderate. We will provide for the tents, transportation, outdoor cooking gear, and food. A suggested packing list will be sent to you once you register. A self-report camp health form will need to be completed by students and parents prior to the trip! Parents are welcome to join the camp as participants or chaperones.
