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, or Kayaking.
Frontier 10-Day Adventure
This extended adventure allows campers a chance to experience a sampling of three core Outpost activities – backpacking (3 days), rock climbing (1 day), and kayaking (1 day) – then close out their trip with a day of rafting. Campers start their journey at Outpost with team-building and practicing basic outdoor skills. (Sample Schedule)
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. (Sample Schedule)

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. (Sample Schedule)
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! (Sample Schedule)
