It includes a three-day backpack trip, intermediate outdoor living skills and introductory training in survival skills. Advanced campers are routinely involved in the planning and arranging of meals, trip execution and morning prayer. This program is designed to be excellent preparation for our two-week Adventure/Survival program. Applicants need to be in good health for the physically strenuous activities involved. Acceptance will be determined by evaluation of the camper’s previously demonstrated ability to hike well and work harmoniously with others, as well as available space.

The Adventure/Survival program is a two-week program designed to be the culmination in both outdoor challenges as well as teamwork, leadership skills and spiritual development. This program includes advanced camp crafts, outdoor living skills as well as training in survival skills. Training will peak with the campers participating in a 24-hour solo that will allow them to demonstrate these new skills. The campers will also take part in a four-day backpacking trip, an orienteering trip to the ocean, and a high elements ropes course .

The spiritual program is just as challenging as the physical program. The advanced nature of Adventure/Survival activities requires intense teamwork and dependability with each individual. Special emphasis on self-awareness, spiritual growth and development of close friendships are all integral aspects of the experience. Adventure/Survival campers are responsible for planning and executing morning prayer.

Applicants need to be in good health for the physically strenuous activities involved. Acceptance will be determined by evaluation of the camper’s previously demonstrated ability to hike well and work harmoniously with others.

The Graduate program is the final stage of the camper experience. This co-ed program lasts one week, and is held in the Lost Cost, King Range. Graduate is based on a challenging hiking route that will start in the beautiful coastal mountains and end on the shores of Black Sands Beach. Built into this beautiful hike are exercises to help you explore the possibility of future leadership roles as well as develop and mature your spiritual understanding of yourself and your world.

The groups camp in separate sites but come together in the evenings for campfire revelry as well as spiritual discussion and challenges. This structure allows and encourages healthy social and spiritual interactions between the two groups. 

Although we consider this program complementary, you do not have to be a CIT to participate in Graduate, nor do you have to complete Graduate to become a staff member.

Adult Backpacking Trip

Age Requirement: 18
Location: Leggett, Ca
Dates: August 1, 2019 – August 5, 2019
Cost:  Standard Registration $TBD

Ready to get back into nature? Miss seeing the Milky Way? Want to re-connect with yourself at a deeper level and explore some rugged backcountry with new-found friends? Come join us for an epic, rejuvenating 5-day trek in the coastal redwood forests along Wild and Scenic South Fork of the Eel River in Mendocino County. We will hike part of Elkhorn Ridge Wilderness Area, which has very limited public access. The Elkhorn Ridge Wilderness contains rugged Coast Range ridges covered with thick forests of redwood, Douglas-fir, and tan-oak.  There are two major forest types encompassing the area: mixed evergreen forest and redwood forest. Our journey will take us through a section of the seven-mile- long segment of the South Fork Eel River, designated as a Wild and Scenic River, which flows through and bisects the wilderness.

Our hike will lead us about four miles as the crow flies to our first sleeping spot along the beautiful Eel River. The group will work together to set up camp, cook meals, and break down camp. Days will be filled with hiking, rock hopping slight rapids, and swimming in the clean, clear waters of the beautiful Eel River. We will sleep under the stars to the sounds of the river discovering constellations and spotting shooting stars.

Each day there will be time set aside for a guided morning and evening reflection and prayer. This will include some solo time to engage in self-reflection and time for partner/group sharing. The opportunity to be removed from all technology allows us to focus on ourselves in a way that many of us don’t experience with regularity. The focus will be on self-awareness and spiritual growth.
