Orinda Intermediate School: Mt. Whitey Youth Programs

March 5 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 pm

There are “summer camps” – and then there is camping in the summer, while backpacking across the Sierra over the course of a week to the summit of Mt. Whitney (14,505 feet), the tallest mountain in the contiguous US. Join us for an inspirational presentation by TSX co-founder Chris Casado. Learn the nuts and bolts of planning a multi-day backcountry trek, including gear, permits, weather and safety considerations, Leave No Trace principles, and protecting your food from bears. Find out how this experience has changed lives for 100s of kids across California, and how you and your kids too, can backpack to the summit of our nation’s highest peak.
