From navigating the backcountry to building lifelong friendships and gaining hands-on leadership skills, the Staff-In-Training Expedition (SIT) for 11th – 12th Graders is an opportunity of a lifetime —one you won’t want to miss.
This unique program kicks off with a six-day backpacking trip in the stunning mountains of Colorado where teens will hike, explore, build community, and receive a specialized Leave No Trace training.
Groups then head to Windy Peak Outdoor Lab, 225 acres of breathtaking wilderness adjacent to the Colorado Trail, where they will reflect on all that they’ve learned and recharge for their upcoming adventures. Next, groups will replenish food supplies and pack up gear for their upcoming week of fun.
SIT campers spend the second week of their empowering experience in the rich landscape of Curt Gowdy State Park in Wyoming where they spend six-days building technical skills in paddling, rock climbing, mountain biking, and hiking and hone their sport-specific skills with their fellow SITs. They’ll also learn how to teach one of our core sports and put those lessons into practice teaching younger campers (assuming groups are inter-mingling in ‘22).
