We start with two days of summer ski camp and snowboarding camp at the legendary Mt. Hood, Oregon! Year-round snow at Palmer Glacier draws skiers and riders from across the globe, while summer sun makes it possible to ski in just a T-shirt and shorts. This is one of the highest-rated activities we offer! Next, we move up to North Bend, where professional guides teach us the essentials for two days of rock climbing. A great way to start Middle School Travel Camp
Our Pacific Northwest middle school camp continues among the soaring, moss-covered trees of the Olympic National Park. The trip's first backpack spans three days and climbs from coastal forests to Lena Lake, where we camp in the shadow of twin peaks called The Brothers. The rain forests, beaches and mountains of the Olympics make the region one of the most unique on Earth, and the ideal setting to kick off our adventure!
We take a ferry north to the famous San Juan Islands for four days of biking, sea kayaking and community service. While paddling through the Pacific, we keep our eyes open for sea lions, orca whales, bald eagles and porpoises. Our adventures take us from Lopez Island to Orcas Island, where we’ll camp near the shores of Moran Lake and work on a trail-building project with local park rangers. Bold Earth's middle school travel camp is the perfect combination of adventure, leadership and community service.
Our last activity is in breathtaking Spider Meadow, where we’ll camp in a wildflower-dotted basin under the shadow of ice-capped peaks. This incredible backpack gives us the chance to practice all the wilderness skills we’ve learned over the previous three weeks, while savoring our last days together. A hike to the glacier above Spider Meadow offers amazing 360-degree views and serves as an epic finale to an amazing three weeks!
