CMC’s weeklong expedition programs get 5th – 8th grade campers out into the wild for a transformative trek that combines character-building backpacking with plenty of outdoor adventure.
While our resident camps revolve around central facilities with cabins, our expedition programs are called “expedition” for good reason—they’re all about the journey. Expedition campers sleep in tents every night, reconnecting to the natural world as they build new awareness of their environment and how to travel through it responsibly. Along the way, they learn lasting skills in everything from gear management and backcountry cooking to problem solving and teamwork.
Perfect for campers looking for a one-week option or those craving an authentic backcountry experience, our expedition programs impart all the backpacking know-how and confidence kids need for many outdoor adventures to come.
