2013 SPECIALTY TRIP DESCRIPTIONS
Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing designed specialty trips for our campers who were looking for the next challenge. Many of our participants had started out getting comfortable with camping on our Outdoor Discovery and worked their way up to the more challenging Classic Adventure. Our specialty trips allow participants to focus on their favorite adventure activity. These trips allow them to really focus in on learning more technique, improving their knowledge, and gaining strength and ability.
All of our specialty trips are taught from a beginner level, however, if you do have prior experience, our instructors and leaders can provide special challenges just for you. With a new lower rate they are more affordable than ever. Check out the links to the specific trips below for details for just that trip or click here for our full list of dates & tuition.
- GO WITH THE FLOW- This all white water adventure has quickly become Wilderness Adventure’s most popular specialty trip. Spend your days basking in the sun on the New River and your nights camping out on islands along the way. For the grand finale you will get to experience Class V rafting on the premier east coast section of river known as “The New River Gorge.” Designed for ages 14-17.
- ROCK & FLOW - In 2011 we had an amazing, “Eureka!” moment after we had a lot of reviews saying that people loved our Rock & Jam trip but 14 days straight of climbing can be a lot, we also had people say they love Go With the Flow but 14 days on the water is a lot. Then came the invention of the Rock & Flow, which could quite possibly be our best specialty trip yet. 7 days of climbing at the best spots on the east coast, mixed with the best river sections from our Go With the Flow trip, and you have the perfect adventure. Designed for ages 14-17.
- WILDERNESS LEADERSHIP COURSE-This prestigious, month long leadership course allows its participants to specialize and focus on all of the outdoor adventure activities we offer. After receiving in depth training in mountain biking, rock climbing, kayaking, backpacking & mountaineering, map & compass, outdoor leadership and tons more, participants actually take over and lead the second two weeks of the trip. They even get to design their own menu! Designed for ages 15-17.
- LEADERSHIP TRAINING COURSE- Many of our participants come back year after year as campers, aspiring to one day join the ranks of the amazing Wilderness Adventure staff. The leadership training course provides participants ages 17 and up the chance to transition with this apprenticeship program. Participants will go through a thorough one week training where they will be evaluated on their dedication and motivation. If they are deemed ready for our apprentice program then they will have the opportunity to shadow activity instructors of their choice and even potentially co-lead a summer trip.
