Teen Adventure Camp Treks are close-knit groups of teens (10-15 trekkers with 2-3 leaders) embarking on an epic journey together into the wilderness backpacking, canoeing, rock climbing, praying, learning, singing, and celebrating Shabbat. Eight or 15 day treks are available.

Shenandoah National Park ​​Backpacking, Canoeing, Rock Climbing

Week 1 (June and July): Explore the glorious Shenandoah wilderness. Three days of rollercoaster ridge hiking alongside breathtaking views followed by a 3-day Shenandoah River paddle, weaving along the forest framed river in the company of bald eagles and blue herons. We will spend Shabbat in the rustic Corbin cabin, nestled in the heart of nature.

Week 2 (June and July): Rock climb at Shenandoah’s stunning Little Stony Man Cliff as we continue to discover and grow together. Four days of epic backpacking will follow, witnessing our spectacular surroundings and encountering our personal and communal power. Our journey along the Appalachian Trail will guide us to Bear’s Den where we’ll indulge in warm showers and celebrate a Shabbat of joy and accomplishment together.

Lech-Lecha לך-לך Adventure Camp fosters social connection and personal growth through group challenges, wilderness skills, and creative activities.
