Camp Summit is pleased to offer a variety of backcountry camping and multi-day hiking trips that will take you to some of the most breathtaking sights British Columbia has to offer!

Campers apart of our Adventure Challenge program will embark upon an amazing two-to-four night overnight trip, hiking popular trails such as Elfin Lake, Joffre Lake and Garibaldi Lake. Under the direction and supervision of our trained Trip Guides, our campers are encouraged to challenged themselves and each other to accomplish goals such as preparing a meal over a fire, setting up a tent/tarp, navigating a trail system and practicing ‘leave no trace’ camping skills.

The SLC 1 program takes participants through a number of shared challenges including a 5 day Powel River canoe trip, where participants learn ‘hands on’ about effective communication, conflict resolution, judgement, decision making, and teamwork. Through shared challenges of this wilderness expedition, participants learn ‘hands on’ about effective communication, conflict resolution, judgement, decision making, and teamwork while also beginning to explore personal leadership styles and skills. Participants are involved in all aspects of their expedition including menu planning, food/gear pack in/out, campsite selection/set-up and cooking.  Over the course of the trip participants gain competency in route navigation with a map and compass, backcountry safety procedures and “Leave No Trace” environmental impact principles.
