Youth Programs

"Thank you so much for helping make this trip happen. It was so life-changing and influential. This trip was not your average fun summer camp. It gave me skills, stories, and gratitude. I will never eat fresh food or sleep in a bed the same way, with the same amount of thought. My most influential part was the solo: 24 long, hard hours showed me who I was, and who I wanted to be." Brandon, Age 13.

 
 

Journeys is not your typical summer camp. Not even close!

Our summer youth programs, for ages 8 – 18, help young people navigate the journey from childhood to adulthood in a supported, mentored way. Led by a team of experienced wilderness mentors, participants will safely experience the physical challenges of demanding mountain backpacking as well as the interpersonal themes of self-reliance, responsibility to self and others, group dynamics and conflict resolution. Along with the demands of physical exertion, come nighttime campfires, story-telling, stargazing and the beauty of the Pacific Northwest wilderness and beaches.

Each experience along the way opens the door for deeper self-discovery inspiring young participants to realize and claim their gifts, skills and strengths; all the while making lifelong friends and exceptional memories.
