Adventure Camp (ages 12 to 16)

Register Now

Designed especially for teens, Point Reyes Adventure Camp features professionally-led backpacking trips into the heart of Point Reyes' Phillip Burton Wilderness.

Participants develop confidence and build leadership skills while practicing “leave no trace” wilderness ethics. Each backpacking group of 13 youth is guided by one professional Naturalist Educator and two trained Counselor Intern Naturalists, all of whom have significant wilderness and youth leadership experience.

Adventure Camp I participants (ages 12 to 14) share a 3-day backpacking trip with their cabin group of the same gender and end the session with a reunion feast and campfire finale. Adventure Camp II participants (ages 14 to 16) share 4 days in the backcountry in a mixed gender group and end the session with a reunion feast and dance party.

Participants must be prepared to hike up to eight miles per day over varied terrain while carrying a 30 to 40 pound backpack. PRSC provides all group gear including tarp shelters, cooking equipment, meals and snacks. Participants are expected to bring their own sleeping bag, sleeping pad, backpack, mess kit and appropriate clothing. A complete gear list is provided upon registration.

We encourage 14 year olds with no backpacking experience to register for Adventure Camp I.
