Campers in this session will take a three-day, off-site backpacking trip to experience all the excitement and adventure of backpacking through Copper Falls State Park on the North Country Trail! Youth will spend the first days at Camp Northwoods preparing for their trip, then travel by van ride to Copper Falls State Park (about one hour away). From there, campers will head out on a three-day, two-night backpacking trip where they'll see ancient lava flows and spectacular waterfalls. Each day campers will load up their backpacks and hike to a different site to camp for the night. After completing their backpacking trip, campers will return to Camp Northwoods to clean up and celebrate!

Juniors will earn their Camper and Trail Adventure badges. Cadettes will earn the Primitive Camper and Trail Adventure badges (included).
