These camps are geared toward youth who enjoy the outdoors and want a more challenging experience. No previous backcountry experience is required, just a thirst for big adventure and a moderate level of physical fitness. The expedition style camps will begin with a day of orientation and training at the City of Chattanooga’s Greenway Farm. On day two, campers will depart for a four day/three night backcountry experience that will include paddling, hiking and other outdoor adventures. Outdoor Chattanooga’s trained staff will introduce campers to the Leave No Trace outdoor ethics, backcountry camping skills and the experience of living in the wild. Campers will get sweaty, dirty, tired and remember these experiences for the rest of their lives.
