2019 Session Dates & Camping Locations
Camping is a required component of the Explorers session. As such, there is not an on-campus alternative. With the exception of Session 3, Campers will be sleeping in tents and working as a group to prepare and cook their meals.
Camping Trips will be Monday-Friday of the second week of each session.
Session 2 has two camping trips, Wed-Fri of the first week and Mon-Fri of the second week.
Session 3 accommodations will be at a cabin/lodge rather than in tents and all food will be provided. As such, there is an additional cost.
