About Our Hiking Camp
Grass-stained knees, wildflower crowns, and dusty trails seem a little distant in the chill of February, but have no fear! Sun-drenched, nature-rich opportunities await. For five straight days, meet brave leaders in the cooler hours of the morning to take a hike and explore. Each day is a new location, with new adventures waiting for you and your friends. There are three sessions of this camp, each with different hikes. You may sign up for one or more of them. Transportation will be provided from campus in the morning and back again in the afternoon by Waterford school bus. Note that this half-day camp is a little longer than most, starting at 8:00 and returning to campus at about noon.
