Hungry to explore wild places? Embark on a rugged challenge? Or just make some new friends along the trail? Then you're in the right place!
In addition to our usual lineup, we’re offering a wide variety of trips for younger participants, including backpacking, service trips (AKA volunteer vacations), and multi sport samplers. Some are run by our more youthful leaders or timed to coincide with the school calendar; others are just a great deal for anyone on a budget. What's more, if you're 18-30 years old you may be able to join select trips at big discounts thanks to two of our scholarship funds. Visit our scholarships page to apply.
