Wilderness Adventure


Camp Daggett Scholarship


All sessions will offer campers, ages 13-15, an exciting opportunity to challenge themselves and learn new skills in a wilderness setting. Each will begin with a day and a half on our challenge ropes course in order to increase the campers' self-confidence and improve their communication and teamwork skills. The group will then put their new found skills to the test as they head off on one of three fun and exciting wilderness adventures.

Although the three trips vary in location and difficulty, each will focus on "Leave No Trace" backcountry ethics, basic survival skills and the general history and ecology of the area.  

Dates and locations for 2017 will be posted as soon as available.


  • Enhance self-confidence while building teamwork skills.
  • Learn responsible and safe backcountry travel, camping and survival skills.
  • Exposure to relevant first aid techniques.
  • Foster an appreciation for the natural world and wild places.

Each trip will be lead by a nationally certified wilderness first responder with life guard certification and accompanied by another adult with current first aid and CPR training. Both staff members have extensive experience leading groups in the backcountry.


 Wilderness Trips for 2017 are in the process of being determined.   Just as for summer camp there are local and out-of-county rates.
