Soaring Eagle Backcountry Wilderness Camp
Glacier Institute Staff
June 29th-July 4th, Sunday-Friday
Experience the beauty, adventure and satisfaction of achievement while exploring the ruggedness of the Crown of the Continent. This six day backpacking camp begins at Big Creek where hikers receive training in backcountry travel preparation, backcountry ethics and safety skills. After preparation we will head into the wilderness for four nights, gaining confidence in map and compass skills, proper backpacking gear use, cooking and trip planning. The hiking level for this camp is strenuous and backpack, sleeping bag and pad are required. Trip itinerary subject to change.
This camp promises excitement and adventure in creating memories that will last for a lifetime. We will learn backpacking, wilderness safety, team building, wilderness travel, camp set-up, cooking, stream-crossing, orienteering, survival skills and more. This camp is more strenuous and demanding than our other youth adventure science camps. Campers will leave with a strong understanding of the rigors of backcountry travel and safety.
