Camp Expedition will include a hike on the Appalachian Trail (AT) with experienced thru-hiker guides. Campers will learn how to set up camp sites with state-of-the-art camping gear and equipment and creating your own low budget gear and equipment. There will be educational discussions of map reading, survival skills, and topography of our local AT region along with educators from our local AT Club. Campers will be exposed map and compass skills, plant identification, and leave-no-trace wilderness ethic.
On Friday, July 14, campers will leave the facility to hike the AT and will return to the KBY campgrounds between 5:15 and 5:30 pm. Parents will be notified of any changes to the schedule.
Traditional camp activities will be incorporated throughout the week as well.
Camp Expedition is for children ages 9-13 years old. Cost is $285 for the week.
