Rocky Mountain: 1-Week Backpacking Trek

This course is filling fast! Only a few spots left.

Come along on this exciting backpacking adventure to get a taste of the mythical Rocky Mountains!

On this week-long expedition, you’ll develop the outdoor skills you need to become a true hiker. At the same time, you’ll improve your leadership and teamwork skills on an unforgettable journey that takes you along rivers, over mountain passes, and through scenic alpine meadows.

Your group will support each other as you hike up steep hills and learn to make do with what you have in your backpack. After a long day of action, you’ll sit around the campfire under the stars to catch up with your peers and instructors and learn how to apply the skills you learned in the wilderness at school or at home.
