ROCKY MOUNTAIN DAY-HIKING

July 28 – Aug. 2

Ages: Completed Grade 6-9
When: July 28 – Aug. 2
Drop-off & Pick-up Location: Lone Prairie Camp
Cost: $335 (Note: As with all camp events, subsidies are available so don’t let cost deter you from coming)

The LPC Rocky Mountain Day-Hiking trip will consist of 5 day-hikes that will be challenging but realistic for a Jr. High student since most of the supplies will remain at the base-camp rather than being carried as in backpacking.

We will be waking up for 7:30am and breakfast will be at 8 so we can start hiking at 8:30. We will be hiking roughly 15km/day at a rate of approximately 3km/hr which means with breaks roughly 5hrs + lunch. Time permitting, we will spend some time on the last day at the Hot Springs.

LPC’s Outtrips are not co-ed and require a critical number of interested camper of a given sex in order to proceed.

WEST COAST TRAIL

BACKPACKING

Aug. 25 – Sept. 2

Ages: Completed Grade 9-12+
When: Aug. 25 – Sept. 2
Drop-off & Pick-up Location: Lone Prairie Camp
Cost: $750 (Note: As with all camp events, subsidies are available so don’t let cost deter you from coming)

This summer we are taking an experienced group of male* backpackers on a 7 day adventure on the world-famous West Coast Trail.

We will leave camp at 6pm on Aug. 25 (Saturday) and drive through the night. This will get us to the ferry terminal early in the morning and we will have plenty of time to reach the trailhead orientation at 2pm and start our hike at 3:30pm. Trail takes 5-7 days, so we are planning to “emerge” on Sept. 1 (Saturday), take a shuttle back to where we parked our van and catch an evening ferry to the mainland. We will pick a low cost campsite to crash at and then drive to Edmonton on Sept. 2 (Sunday), leaving the Monday holiday to recover before school starts on Tuesday.

The trail includes “wading rivers, climbing ladders, using cable cars, following an irregular trail, negotiating steep slopes and earth slumps”…Totally epic with the added challenge of coordinating with tide charts!

* Are you a female interested in participating in an LPC Backpacking trip? We need a critical number of interested female campers before we can offer a female backpacking trip ($335) and we would love to hear from you! We’d also be happy to discuss if you are interested in a 2019 female West Coast Trail trip.
