Led by our certified and knowledgeable team of guides, Zephyr Point High Camp is a four to five-day backpacking expedition. Each session campers and guides will hike and camp within the diverse forests, wide open grass meadows, granite cliffs and alpine lakes throughout the Lake Tahoe Region. This is a unique summer adventure, designed to give middle school and high school students an opportunity to learn the skills of backcountry camping.
High camp is an educational and exciting adventure for students of all abilities and experience levels. By the end of their course, participating students will be able to demonstrate their comprehension in areas such as backpacking, map and compass navigation, Leave No Trace ethics, and knowledge of Tahoe basin trees and wildlife.
Zephyr Point provides all backpacking equipment needed such as, packs, tents, stoves, etc. See you outside!
Please note, all campers must complete the medical release form and waivers 14 days prior to the first day of camp.
