Teens invited to experience the Tahoe Rim Trail

The Tahoe Rim Trail Association and Sierra Nevada Journeys are partnering for the fourth annual Youth Backcountry Camps summer program.

All youths ages 14-17 are invited to attend 2011 Youth Backcountry Camps. These programs are a unique opportunity for teens to develop backcountry skills in the beautiful mountains of Lake Tahoe.

Make new friends while learning about the natural history of the basin, outdoor leadership and teamwork, and participate in a service learning project building part of the Tahoe Rim Trail.

2011 Youth Backcountry Camps are schedules as follows: Session 1: July 6-8; Session 2: July 24-26; Session 3: July 28-30; and Session 4: Aug. 14-15

For teens with some experience or interest in backcountry travel, the Tahoe Rim Trail Association and Sierra Nevada Journeys will also hold YBCC2. Like Youth Backcountry Camps, our five-day YBCC2 program focuses on backcountry skills and outdoor leadership development.

This program provides an incredible wilderness experience for young people with experienced and well-trained staff from the Tahoe Rim Trail Association and Sierra Nevada Journeys. The session is scheduled Aug.  2-6.
