Frontier campers (rising 7th-9th graders) learn intermediate outdoor skills at the Frontier Site, with dining shelters, a private pond, and open-air hammock cabins for sleeping. A 1-night or 2-night adventure trip introduces skills for a specific outdoor activity: Backpacking, Rock Climbing, Horseback Riding, or Kayaking.
Frontier 10-Day Adventure
Campers will experience a sampling of three different Outpost activities: backpacking, rock climbing, and kayaking. Campers start out at camp with team-building and practicing basic outdoor skills. The ten days includes three days of backpacking, a rock-climbing day, and two days of kayaking.
The 2-day Backpacking experience covers mild to moderate terrain, short distances, a pristine waterfall, and breathtaking views, making this trip perfect for beginner and advanced hikers alike.

Climbers will spend two days camping and climbing. Before leaving camp, campers can practice their climbing skills on Outpost’s bouldering wall or climbing tree. Campers will then learn climbing basics, including knot tying, climbing techniques, gear essentials, and belay technique.
Designed for first-time or beginner riders, Frontier Horse campers spend two days out of the week learning basic horseback riding skills and safety with our partners at Foundation Farms Equestrian Center (campers hike to the ranch, which is adjacent to Glisson property). This experience includes a special afternoon trail ride, after which campers will have the opportunity to camp out at the horse stables before returning the next morning.
Kayakers will spend two days paddling on local rivers, camping along the way. No prior kayaking experience is required, so this trip is perfect for beginner to intermediate paddlers!
