BACKPACKING IN THE SIERRAS
JULY 09 - JULY 15, 2017
Ages: 13 - 19
Prerequisite: Past camping, backpacking, and/or extensive hiking experience.
Elliott and Lindsey have extensive backpacking experience in the Sierras on their own and as guides for others taking on the literal ups and downs of exciting, extended adventures in the mountains! On this trip in the wild, we’ll unplug and learn from the land, push our own perceived limits, and realize the value of supportive community. We'll recognize what little is needed to thrive in the wild, as we travel lightly and leave no trace of our visit behind. Singing, storytelling, journaling, cooking on the trail, identifying edible plants, tracking animals–these are a few of the experiences we’ll have, as we build mountain memories together. We’ll send a gear list after your registration is complete.
