Youth Outdoor Explorer Camp at Saguaro National Park West

March 21, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 9:00 pm


Campers will explore the wilds of the park and experience the wonders of nature as they are guided by experienced and enthusiastic staff. Campers will set up tents and string up tarps for shelter at their base camp, learn how to use a backpack stove to cook hot chocolate and soup, discover the desert’s secrets as they wander through the hidden washes searching for animals and their signs. Most importantly, campers will learn how to explore the outdoors safely. The camp ends with an informal celebration and ceremony. Families are invited to join in at the family campfire for hot chocolate and marshmallow roasting 30 minutes before pick up.
