Morning meet time at the trailhead. Time will be determined and set out to participants. We'll want to be on the trail early enough so we get a good camp spot and kids have plenty of time to play at the lake.

This is an overnight backpack for elementary aged children with their families.  At least one parent/guardian must be present.  Younger children are allowed as long as parent/guardian is able to plan for child's abilities.  Please e-mail leader if you have any questions.
