Check-in for the Backpacking Trip will take place at Central Christian Church, located at 17833 Gambier Road, Mount Vernon, OH 43050.
Join us for the second year of this trip! Limited to 10 campers. Destination will be Red River Gorge in Kentucky.
Leaving modern comforts behind, campers will carry everything with them for multi-day hikes through true backcountry. This will be an experience unlike any other! Campers will learn basic backpacking skills such as filtering water, building fires and camping in the backcountry. Practicing the "Leave No Trace" philosophy, they will engage in low-impact camping to respect the beauty of God's creation.
WARNING: this is a high impact and physical week of camp.
Campers will meet at the designated location for check-in. They will then ride vans down to the trip site. More details will be provided at registration. For more information: contact Lyle Baker.
