Through an unforgettable 3-day experience, this program equips participants with wilderness skills needed for back country exploration.
Experience a variety of natural environments through challenging hikes, natural history activities, and extensive explorations of forests, fresh water and marine ecosystems.
Our skilled staff will guide you through interactive lessons on orienteering, tarp and food cache production, wilderness safety, rope making and knot tying. Pair this with a lot of fun – games, scavenger hunts, cooking over camp stoves, sleeping in tents and exploring the shore by moonlight – and you have our Back Country Experience program!
Generously supported by MEC, this program includes the use of a variety of camping gear.
