Backpacking at Mt. Rainier, WA
Cost of Attending: $300 (charged directly to student account)
Join us for an incredible trek into the wonders of massive old-growth trees, moss covered logs, and breathtaking mountain views. You and your fellow travelers will journey from campsite to campsite, learning navigation and backpacking skills along the way. Complete your entire adventure in one of the most beautiful national parks in the country.
After this five-day adventure your group will move into the classroom to explore these subjects in greater depth. This classroom time will help you continue building the friendships you established on the trip, better prepare you to succeed at Pacific and develop your leadership skills so you can impact people’s lives here and beyond.
