San Juan Kayaking (Session 2)
One of Washington’s crowning creations is the San Juan Islands. On this trip we’ll be riding the turning tides in the North Puget Sound while learning backcountry camping and water skills. Each day time will be spent paddling along the picturesque islands observing the epic diversity of the Salish Sea before setting up camp for the night. At each destination, campers will get to join together in Catholic community around the campfire and reflect on the wonders of God’s Creation. Intermediate swimming ability is required for all water trips (swim 100 yards, tread water for one minute).
Wenatchee Canoe and Float (Session 4)
Load up your canoe and step into adventure down the White River and across Lake Wenatchee. Paddle the rapids, swim with the fish, and explore the crystal waters and wilderness of Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. When the hard work is over, spend an afternoon relaxing in the sunshine and floating the Wenatchee River.
Horse Pack Trip (Session 5)
Just a short drive from Camp Hamilton, our pack trip will leave from the stunning Wahoo Ranch. From horseback, you’ll encounter vistas of the rugged central Cascades, flowered meadows, and pine forests. Along the way we’ll camp in tents gathered around the campfire to sing songs, swap stories, and grow in faith. Just like the cowboys of old, you’ll bond with the horses and fellow campers while enjoying a classic Western setting.
