Adventure seekers and nature lovers, this camp is for you! This week long advanced specialty camp is a unique and exciting opportunity to experience and learn about nature through an authentic, two-night backpacking trip! We will be learning about safety and equipment training, receive an environmental education lesson about local flora and fauna, habitats, and history, and spend two nights exploring the wilderness as true backpackers. All equipment, food, and transportation will be provided by Camp JCC. Campers are required to bring their own (counselor approved) ankle supportive, hiking boots. Campers enrolled in this camp will be participating in swimming during the week.
