Youth Backcountry Camp

- Aug 18-21, 2019
- Tahoe Rim Trail Association
Join an intrepid group of 12 youth, ages 14-17, on an exciting and challenging adventure to discover and experience firsthand the beauty of the Lake Tahoe region with the Tahoe Rim Trail Association (TRTA) and Tahoe Institute for Natural Science (TINS). Make new friends while backpacking between three and six miles per day. Learn new backcountry skills and support your fellow adventurers in the wild. Discover and explore the exciting flora, fauna and natural history of the Tahoe Basin. Sleep under the stars after cooking your own dinner over a backpacking stove. Each day is jam-packed with new experiences, character-building challenges, and outdoor fun.
Youth Backcountry Camps are fully supported by well-trained TRTA and TINS staff. All food, camping gear, permits, and transportation to and from the trailheads is provided. Participants only need to provide shoes, clothes, and a passion to get outside!
