Basecamp Backpacking

 
Basecamp Backpacking trips are 6-day backpacking trips that start and end at Wilderness Ranch. Here in the San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado, we provide kids with an opportunity to get away from the distractions of the city and encounter God in new ways they can’t back home by hiking through some of the most beautiful country in the United States. At basecamp, trips will be greeted by summer staff, pack everything necessary at a packing station, enjoy club and an outdoor lunch and then hit the trailhead. Trips will return to basecamp on the last day, unpack, get clean, enjoy camp before having dinner in the dining hall, followed by club, before heading home that evening. Every trip is led by 2-3 of our experienced guides. Our guides have been professionally trained and are equipped to provide a safe and enjoyable week for your group. Every trip is different, and our guides are prepared to adjust the logistics of the week to meet the individual needs of each group. 

All of our routes cut through either the Weminuche Wilderness or the Rio Grande National Forest of the San Juan Mountains.  You will have the opportunity to either peak a mountain or cross the Continental Divide on your trip, while usually not seeing another person for 6 days! ​​​
