Youth Activities

One of our missions is to pass the skills and fun of back country packing on to the next generation. To do that, we have events aimed specifically at young people. These are articles and pictures of those events. [They are in reverse order by date, (latest at the top) but we sometimes add pages a couple of months after the event.]
