Mountain Quest Camp: Otter Clan
11-14 year olds:
This is an introduction to backpacking for younger teens with a sense of adventure. We are sending our most experienced counselors to help facilitate a heart-filled excursion in the wilderness. It is designed to be an introductory experience for teens who wish to learn the skills of backpacking and wilderness living. Come explore trout filled mountain streams, winding trails, waterfalls, and rock outcroppings. Experience the clear mountain air, dappled sunshine and uncommon plants and animals of the southern Appalachians. We will meet at Piedmont Wildlife Center, load up our rental van and embark upon a week of wilderness living and backpacking.
Cost: $625 for week-long overnight experience. Campers provide their own backpacks and sleeping bags
