Come join us on this four-day, three-night adventure for teens only.  Campers will deepen their experience in the wilderness environment and gain hands-on leadership skills.  This is a self-contained wilderness trek designed to develop endurance and self-confidence by pushing personal boundaries in a safe and supportive backcountry setting. Experienced wilderness instructor Nicholas Gale will teach subjects such as proper selection and use of outdoor gear, shelter building, wilderness cooking, weather safety, and wilderness navigation.  Campers will provide their own backpacks, sleeping bags, and personal clothing. Tarps for tents will be provided as well as food and cooking gear. A detailed gear list is provided with registration confirmation. An additional female staff will be available to chaperone overnights.  

 Campers enrolling in this camp must have already taken the KVR Wilderness Adventure day camp.  Consideration will be given to students with comparable wilderness experience.  Call for more information.
Fee:  $210 (3 meals per day will be provided)
Limit:  10 children per session
Registration deadline:  July 25, 2018
