Trip Overview

This two week program, specifically designed for students completing the 7th, 8th, and 9th grades, is a perfect introduction to backpacking, whitewater rafting, and sea kayaking! The Yellowstone and Teton wilderness areas are home to some of the most incredible scenery Montana and Wyoming have to offer. While exploring remote corners of these areas, students will develop their backcountry living skills and learn to live comfortably in unique outdoor settings. Catch beautiful sunrises while kayaking and experience sleeping under the stars while backpacking. Traveling on foot and by kayak allows students to see the natural world in an entirely new way – keep your eyes peeled, you might see a few animals along the way!

I learned that if I set my mind to something then anything is possible, especially with the support of my new friends and trip leaders!
