 High Adventure Camp 2018web

High Adventure Camp is a seven day, six night residential camp for adventurous campers seeking to explore the natural world in a wilderness setting.  Campers will spend two days and nights at Arlington Echo, preparing for their upcoming adventure and learning the basics of backcountry skills and safety. Tuesday morning, we’ll board the bus and drive out to the trailhead, and then our real adventure begins!  Our campers will spend the next four days hiking through beautiful wilderness, taking time to enjoy breathtaking mountain vistas, observe wildlife, search streams for crayfish and tadpoles, and develop backcountry skills.

Space is extremely limited so sign up today!

Who Can Participate

All Outdoor Education camps are open to any student who has an interest in the environment, adventure, and personal growth. 

Hiking to a remote campsite is an incredibly rewarding experience, but not without its challenges. Please note that by its nature, backpacking is a physically strenuous activity. Campers will be required to carry between 15-25 lbs. of gear and hike rugged terrain – sometimes steep – for up to 6 miles daily. If you have any questions or concerns about whether High Adventure Camp is right for your camper, please don’t hesitate to call the number below.

Staff
Ted Hall, Arlington Echo Teacher Specialist, and Eóin Oneill, Arlington Echo Outdoor Educator, will direct the camp with the assistance of other full-time Arlington Echo staff.  Staff have extensive outdoor experience and training in Wilderness First Aid.  For more information, please contact Arlington Echo Outdoor Education Center at 410-222-3822.
