Ranger Trips: Experience The Challenge and Adventure!
“The Ranger program taught me to push myself past my limits and exceed my expectations!”
- 15-year-old Ranger participant
The Ranger Programs are for campers who are ready to take on the challenge of an exciting wilderness adventure, make new friends and have fun in a dynamic and safe environment. The trips are led by our experienced Ranger Directors who hold certifications in Wilderness First Aid, CPR for the Professional Rescuer and Lifeguarding. Each trip travels with GPS units so parents are able to track the daily progress of their camper. New this year are three unique one-week trips, each designed to serve as an introduction to outdoor adventuring and leadership to prepare younger campers for two-week trips in the future.
