Families are welcome on trips and children are encouraged to come on our trips but must be accompanied by a guardian if under 18. There is a certain amount of freedom and risk associated with the activities in trail crew. Each person assumes personal responsibility for not getting lost, sleeping in tents in the woods, periods of time being unsupervised, and monitoring your food and water intake. Many young people are perfectly capable of handling all of the above but if not we do not have enough staff to handle taking care of and monitoring them. Please consider coming on a trip with your child it is a great experience.
