Trip Description 

Days will include hiking 5-7 miles per day. We will be primarily in a “backcountry” setting, away from toilets and running water. Campers are expected to carry all necessary items into a hike-in campsite. This includes all personal belongings as well as portions of group items to be divided up upon arrival at camp (tent parts, food, etc.). Campers will assist in setting up camp, cooking, and other tasks as part of this program. 

At Preparation Canyon (July 22-26), campers will spend the week hiking and learning about the unique features and ecology of the Loess Hills. Campers will be camping at various hike-in only sites throughout the park, completing a roughly 10-mile loop by week’s end. Campers will learn basic backpacking skills
