Loons - Trips for Ages 14-16
Loons, our 14 to 16 year old campers are excited to go on one of their first extended expeditions. These trips are designed to be an introductory 3-week trip experience where campers can learn the ins and outs of backpacking, canoeing, sea kayaking, or whitewater kayaking.
Campers will spend their time learning the skills and knowledge required to travel in remote locations such as setting up camp, starting a fire, backcountry cooking, map and compass, how to live and work together, and many more skills. Loon trips begin the leadership progression, trip leaders hand off leader of the day responsibilities to participants as they demonstrate the necessary skills and knowledge. These responsibilities could be navigating to a new campsite, taking charge of a camp crew, or determining what’s for dinner.
