Learn important back-country survival skills like map reading, orienteering, and wilderness first aid! Stokes Nature Center’s back-country adventure will explore many of the beautiful hidden places throughout the Mt. Naomi Wilderness area that few ever make the trek to see. We’ll observe the ecology of mountain flora and fauna, soak our feet in high mountain lakes, and learn how to safely select, set up and manage a back-country campsite. We’ll spend evenings playing camp games and star-gazing. Team-building and leadership exercises insure participants connect not only with nature, but with themselves, for the kind of transformative experience every young person should have.

*Please note this is a back-country camp which involves 2 consecutive nights of camping. Tuesday’s camp will run 9:00am-4:00pm and includes a safety briefing, Leave No Trace camper orientation, and preparation of our back-country camping plan to file with the Forest Service. On Wednesday morning we’ll head into the wilderness and return early on Friday. SNC provides three healthy backpacking meals daily, which are included in the camp fee.
