Hit the trail in this wilderness trip session, where you’ll experience all the excitement and adventure of wilderness tripping. You’ll spend the first days at Camp Northwoods prepping for your trip. Then you’ll take a van toto the Upper Peninsula of Michigan for an 8-day backpacking trip on the amazing Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Each day you will load up your backpacks and hike to a different site to camp for the night.  

Continue to refine your trip skills as you enjoy beautiful views of Lake Superior and the unique rock formations of the area. After completing your backpacking trip, you’ll return to Camp Northwoods to clean up and celebrate. Previous backpacking and remote camping experience recommended. Cadettes will earn their Trail Adventure and Primitive Camper badges; Seniors will earn the Adventure Camper and Trail Adventure badges (included).
