Get Outdoors! You won’t truly appreciate the Backcountry until you experience it through one of our programs. We make it easy to get outside and enjoy nature and offer something for everybody.
Are you ready to have the best summer ever? Our week-long day camps give explorers ages 7 to 17 the opportunity to challenge themselves in the wilderness. Choose from weekly camp sessions of nature camp, horse camp, adventure camp, art camp, archery camp, or teen leadership camp.
Go into the heart of the Backcountry on a staff-led program. Join us to venture out birding, roast marshmallows around a campfire, and create unique works of art. Get inspired by guest speakers and listen to elk bugle in the crisp fall air. From events designed for kids as young as three to adult-only programs, there’s something for anyone.
Get Outdoors… Connect with Nature!
