We will have three full days of instruction at the JCC covering safety and equipment training, an environmental education lesson about local flora and fauna, habitats, and history, and a practice day hike at Millcreek Park. Then, on Thursday, we will head to Dolly Sods, West Virginia 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 not be participating in swimming during the week.
