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

What to expect on the trip

1) You will hike 30+ miles throughout the week.
2) There will be multiple stops to re-supply throughout the trip, meaning you will never need to carry gear for more than two days at once.
3) You will have the opportunity to shower and eat at a local campground every couple of days.
4) Campers will supply some of their gear while other items will be provided by the camp. Contact the dean for more information. A gear checklist is available below.
