Summer Camp - Mount Rainier - 2019

Youth Program

Summer Camp - Mount Rainier

Three day camp out at Cougar Rock Campground!

COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers course.

Join the Mountaineers for a 3 day camping adventure at Mt. Rainier. We will be travelling up to Mt. Rainier, camping out under it’s looming gaze and practicing our mountaineering skills.  This camp is open to kids ages 10 and up and includes transportation, food, and skills lessons up on the mountain.  (MORE+)

Campers arrive at the Seattle Program Center on Monday morning at 9am. We will triple check gear, pack up the cars, and hit the road. Once camp is all set up, we will have some time for adventuring before dinner. Our evening will be filled with campfire songs, stories, stargazing, and s'mores.

Tuesday is filled with hiking and mountaineering skills. We will head up to Paradise, and either practice snow skills on a snowfield up towards Camp Muir or walk a 5 mile loop around Paradise Meadow. After our long day, we will make a hearty dinner and enjoy another campfire-side evening.

Wednesday begins with a big breakfast, camp cleanup, and a short skills session or walk before we all hop back into the car and head back to Seattle. We'll get back in time for some swimming at the lake or climbing at The Mountaineers. Pick up will be at the Seattle Program Center at 4pm.

Looking forward to the adventure!
