Week-long and 10-day adventure trips allow Expedition campers (rising 10th-12th grades) to hone their skills in specific activities: Backpacking, Rock Climbing, Whitewater Kayaking, or Canoeing. After 1-2 nights at the Expedition Site, living groups set up tarp shelter camp sites on the trail, along the river, or at the rock face.
