The Tahoe Rim Trail Association, Sierra Nevada Journeys, and the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science are partnering for the fifth annual Youth Backcountry Camp summer program.
Youth ages 12-17 may attend one of the three-, five- or six-day programs.
Year-after-year, these programs are an opportunity for local teens to make friends while learning about wilderness survival, navigation (map/compass and GPS), Leave No Trace wilderness ethics, local ecology and geology and backcountry cooking and nutrition. Participants will backpack approximately 5-7 miles per day and participate in a service learning project building or improving part of the Tahoe Rim Trail.
