Valentine Breton Camping, 2018-04-23 20:40:59. Summer youth camp is an exciting time for both teens and parents. But along with the excitement there may be some anxiety and fear as well. It is much easier for parents to send a teen off to youth camp that has had the camp experience before. But it may create a lot of fear and anxiety for a younger teen that has never been away from home and has never been apart from his or her parents for so many days. Of course there will also be other teens who can‘t wait for the chance to get away from home for a few days. And most parents can appreciate a little break away from the teens for a few days. Even so a little concern and anxiety on the part of parents is also to be expected. Parents must keep in mind that a well-planned youth camp has great staff and leaders to take care of your youth during their stay.

If you are sure there will be water at your destination carry just slightly more than sufficient water to last until you arrive. Water is of greater importance than food to your survival. Always filter any water you find along the trail and that you are in need of using - unless the water is from a natural spring. If you can fix a long drinking straw to the water bottle so you can drink as you move the better.
Valentine Breton Camping, 2018-04-27 06:30:57. Summer Youth Camp Recreation Activities. Many summer youth camps offer a variety of recreational activities in addition to the standard camp program. Homesickness is a part of the "first time away from home" camp but the more activities that suit the desires of your teen the better. Look through the recreation options with your teen and discuss them. Let the youth negotiate which activities they wish to participate in. Some activities may require special permission from parents. If for some reason any activity is off-limits to your youth you will need to make that clear to the camp staff and put it in writing. Some recreational activities may also require youth to pack special equipment or clothing. Most camp registration forms will have a section of the form for parents to complete regarding the recreational activities and permission for the youth to participate in them.
Alacoque Dupacrac Camping, 2018-04-28 01:00:41. Clothing. Don‘t wait until the week before the your teen is leaving for summer youth camp to start planning your packing. It is also vital to include your teen in the packing process in order for them to be familiar with what they are taking. Some clothing may need to be bought in advance. It‘s also a good idea to label the clothing discretely inside on the tags with your teen‘s name or at least their initials. Labeling should extend to everything the youth is packing. Clothing bathing suits towels cameras and anything else that is going into that bag plus the bag itself. If the summer youth camp has sports activities field trips or religious services you will need to also pack the clothing for these functions.

A good base layer will be wicking away the sweat from your skin while making sure that you stay at the right temperature. Most important of all you need to make sure that you‘re comfortable so try a few different materials and make sure you‘re happy with the one you choose and it‘ll look after you while you‘re hiking.

Your clothes should be resistant to absorbing water (i.e not jeans) and it is better to take a number of thin jumpers than a thick jumper. Also please remember 80% of heat is lost through your head - so a hat is a must. In addition most importantly buy some good quality waterproof gear. A good raincoat (not thin) and waterproof leggings is essential to keeping dry and safe on a hike. This hiking gear is very important for a hike.
Josephe Batard Camping, 2018-04-28 01:00:28. Camps should have at least a 40% to 60% return staff ratio which shows that the camp is seen as a good place to spend a summer. Specialty overnight camps can range from $500 to $1000 per week depending on the program. Most camp counselors are in their late teens or early twenties and are high school and college students on their summer break.
Josephe Batard Hiking, 2018-04-28 01:00:50. We carried ice axes but after the first couple of passes they were used mostly for digging cat holes. The sun cups were one of the biggest problems along with post holing in the soft snow in the afternoons. Almost everyone used trail running shoes except the Europeans who wore mountaineering boots. We had wet feet the whole way through the Sierras from the snow and river crossings and much of Washington from the rain and new snow but surprisingly it wasn‘t much of a problem. We did get tired of the snow and needing to be constantly on the search for the trail. I would like to go back and hike the John Muir Trail (most of which is the same as the PCT) in the fall when you can actually walk on the trail.
GivenName Surname Hiking, 2018-04-28 01:00:45. Hiking boots. Another essential item to your hiking gear are hiking boots. You need strong boots for the tough trail ahead. Your boots should support your ankles as well as your feet. Make sure they are comfortable and fit well. Also make sure that you wear your hiking boots a number of times before you use them on the hike. This will help prevent blisters - not nice. Map Compass. It is obvious but you need to know where you are going and plan your route and have a map and compass. It is an essential aspect of your hiking gear. Also ensure you know how to use them. How to read a map. How to set a map using your surroundings and a compass.

A belay device is a small unit with two slots through which the rope is fed. If you are not hiking alone then using a belay device will allow you to hike above or below your hiking partner. If you are hiking above your hiking partner then you can pull back on the rope if hiking partner begins falling or vice versa.
