    Youth Backpacking Trip

    See notesWilderness of Northern New Mexico or Colorado

    imagesTrek is a weeklong trip, backpacking in the Wilderness of Northern New Mexico or Colorado. We travel to the wilderness, camp and hike. We will spend a day trying to summit a mountain, we will spend time in silence and solitude with God in solo time, and we will serve each other as we work together to hike the trail. When we come off the trail, we will stay in a hotel and do another activity that promotes unity and servant leadership before heading home.

    We will leave on Saturday, July 2nd, and return Sunday July 10th. Departure and return times will be announced at our meeting on May 22.

    * Because of the physical nature of this trip this is a trip for High School students, with some exceptions for younger teens being granted based on your teen’s ability to carry a 25-30 pound pack for many hours, and if they have a parent attending.

    There will be two meetings prior to going on this trip to help prepare our teens and adult sponsors. We will make sure that everyone has the proper equipment and will work to provide any needed equipment. We will provide food for the week while camping, and we will provide parents with a detailed itinerary. THIS IS A PHYSICALLY DEMANDING TRIP, so each teen needs to be sure to be exercising and building cardio endurance leading up to this trip!
