Youth - 2022 Wilderness Trail Backpacking Trip

One of our favorite summer trips! We head to Wilderness Trail (WT) in Grayson Highlands in Virginia. WT has been taking youth and adults on backpacking trips for over 20 years.  This experience is WAY more than just backpacking - we will also experience servant leadership, what it means to be a part of the body of Christ, overcoming challenges, self-worth and unconditional love.  YOU will love it!

This year's trip will be July 5-10th.

Total Cost: $325, $150 deposit to register

WT provides backpacks, tents or hammocks, food and cooking supplies and knows exactly where we will spend the night. 

We will keep an eye on what needs to happen with social distancing as we get closer to the summer but I do know:

  • We will take a smaller group
  • Option to sleep in hammocks
  • Shorter overall trip
  • Travel to WT in two 12 passenger vans
