Rocky Mountain 7-day Backpacking

Ready to grab a pack and hike through the stunning Rocky Mountains ?

Join us on this exciting backpacking expedition to develop your leadership, teamwork and outdoor skills. Your group will support each other as you travel up steep inclines and learn to live out of a backpack. This adventure will take you alongside rivers, over mountain passes, and through alpine meadows. After a long day full of activity, debrief with fellow youth while sitting around a campfire under the stars. With the help of your instructors, the skills you learn in the backcountry can help you in school or at home.
