College (ages 18-24) Montana Backpacking 7 Days
July 25- August 2
Our Montana backpacking experience is a push into the wilderness of big sky country. We will cover multiple peaks and camp each night beside alpine lakes. This trip is designed for relaxing and disconnecting while growing deeper in community with other individuals. Over the course, we will hike up to 10,000 feet and spend 5 nights in the backcountry. Disconnect and rest are the priority and for that reason we will be without cell service for most of this trip. (This is a moderately strenuous trip. Individuals should be in relatively good physical condition.)
Our West programs are designed for men and women ages 18+
Montana Flyfishing Float Trip 7 Days
TRIP1 — June 16-21 Cabin/Float
TRIP2 — July 7-12 Backcountry/Float
Our backcountry float is a once in a lifetime opportunity to selfishly take 5 nights and disconnect from everything while allowing your soul to rest . We will cover an average of 35 miles over the course of 6 days. We will feast on incredible meals and have an unforgettable experience catching huge fish and camping along the river each night. This is a fully guided experience— meaning, you show up and we do the rest. We keep our groups size small to ensure excellence and to help maximize the experience.
Our backcountry float programs are designed for men and women ages 18+
North Carolina Backpacking (3-14 Days)
February 8-10 / March 22-24 / April 12-14
- TRAIL's backpacking programs are a one of a kind opportunity to trek into the wilderness away from distractions. God created man in the wilderness and He is calling him back there to find freedom, strength and courage in our relationship with Him. A trek through the wilderness requires grit and determination and offers a unique opportunity to see God's creation. We offer weekend, 7, 10 and 14 day expeditions varying in both elevation change and length. While on TRAIL, participants learn how to properly pack a backpack, make fire, cook in the backcountry, Leave No Trace ethics, work together in a group, water filtration and purification, bear safety, manage water crossings, how to read a map and plot a course and safely choose and set up a campsite.
Backcountry Instructor Course
- We constantly get asked, “I would love to work with you guys; how can I get involved?” It starts here. In the Spring of each year, we offer an Instructor Course that covers everything you need to know to facilitate a backcountry experience with us. This course will not guarantee you a position, but will open the door to the opportunity and will help you find a job with other outdoor companies as well. This course will help bolster and define the budding skills of an outdoor leader. This course is also available for anyone who is already working for a camp and wants to learn how to facilitate trips in the backcountry. We cover everything from how to handle waste to how to manage groups.
