Backpacking Action & Adventure Camps
The Backpacking Action & Adventure Kamp is two camps in one - a Backpacking Action Camp (BAC) for high school guys and a Backpacking Adventure Kamp (BAK) for middle school guys and leaders. Both camps are essentially the same and camp together but the action camp trainees must participate in a series of classes and activities that the adventure kamp guys do not. Refer to the camper applications for registration fees and participation requirements for each camp.
Both camps provide opportunities to learn and participate in a moderate backpacking trip (hiking about 10 miles over 3 days) in one of the most beautiful areas of the county, the Buffalo National River in northern Arkansas. All campers are responsible for bringing all their own food and gear. A recommended menu as well as a list of recommended gear is provided below. If you need assistance in gathering food or equipment, please let us know. We’re here to help, and we want you to join us!
