Mountain Quest Camp: Bear Clan
13-18 year olds:
July 28 – August 3
This is a backpacking trip designed for older teens in which we will hone our skills in wilderness living. Come ready for a transformative experience that could be life changing. A central part of this experience is that we will work on building a tribe in which we can share stories and deep wilderness adventures. We will practice wilderness skills such as friction fire, longmatches, edible plants, and more. We will do a night drumstalk and an optional overnight solo in the mountains. This is designed to be a challenging but rewarding experience. It is a powerful way to connect to nature and to our own inner nature. Our excursion will take place at Grayson Highlands located near Wilson, Virginia. It is a beautiful mountain area with balds, blueberries, wild ponies, sunsets, sunrises, star-filled night skies, and mountain streams. It is about 3.5 hours away.
Cost: $550 for week-long overnight experience. Campers provide their own backpacks and sleeping bags.
