Join us in Olympia for another packed 4-day camping adventure at our Mountaineers property near Mt. Rainier! We will be traveling to Mt Rainier and camping out under the summer sky near the Carbon River.  This camp is open to kids ages 10-15 and includes transportation, food, and skills lessons up on the mountain.

Campers arrive at the Rose Garden in Priest Point Park on Monday morning at 9am. We will play a few introduction games before we do a gear check, pack up the cars, and hit the road. On our way to camp, we will make a stop along the way for some lunch along the river. Once at camp, we will work together to set up camp and will have some time for adventuring near the river before dinner. Our evening will be filled with campfire songs, stories, stargazing, and s'mores.

Tuesday and Wednesday is all about enjoying the trails on Mt Rainier. We will head up to Mowich Lake where we will explore the trails to find waterfalls, open flowered meadows,  alpine lakes, and more.  Be sure to bring swim gear to enjoy the time we will spend swimming in the alpine lakes an dsplashing in the nearby carbon river. EAch evening we will make a hearty dinner and enjoy games and entertainment near the campfire.

Thursday begins with a big breakfast and camp cleanup. After some time playing along the river and exploring the riverside trails, we will hop back into the car and head back to Olympia. Pick up is at the Rose Garden at 4pm.
