Weekly Day Trips, Overnight Cabin Trips, and Kayak Camping Trips there is fun to had all summer long! Cost for these trips are listed below,
however the cost can easily be waived or discounted.  We use pay-as-you-can tuition, which can go all the way down to $0.

Day Trips- At 8:30am all participants will meet at Twin Lakes. From there we will travel by 15 passenger van to our day’s destination, exploring
the Tongass National Forest or other park lands in the CBJ. After a full day of exploring, we will load up and travel back to Twin Lakes arriving
at 4:00 (itineraries change each week and will be sent to parents in the week prior to camp). Weekly themes indicate a general focus for the week,
but all weeks prioritize open time to explore outdoors each day. $260

Overnight Cabin Trips- Monday is not overnight, but will be a time to make sure everyone has the proper gear, food, and equipment–we will help
find gear if you do not have access. Then Tuesday through Friday will include wilderness backpacking, spending the nights in remote cabins. Days
will include roughly 4 mile hikes with a pack; you do not have to be a super-hiker but should have excitement to backpack in a group. $410

Kayak Camping Trips- Begin the week long adventure by meeting the group early morning and reviewing gear before heading to the Eagle Valley
Center for the first night of camping. For the rest of the week, we will cook meals over a camp stove, paddle through the beautiful waters of
Southeast Alaska, and experience the shores and wildlife before returning back to Juneau on Friday afternoon. Meals, paddle gear, and instructors/
guides are included in the cost. Kayak experience is not required, but excitement to be active outdoors in all weather is a must! $440
