TVRC-Expeditions is a 20-day backpacking and alpine mountaineering program geared toward high school students (ages 14-17 years old) who are excited about practicing camping techniques and leadership skills in the stunning mountain ranges of northwestern Wyoming. Whether you are an avid hiker or eager to try backcountry camping for the first time, TVRC-Expeditions offers educational opportunities appropriate for students with varying levels of prior experience.
A typical trip is co-educational, with 10 students and two Trip Leaders (TL’s). Students join us from a variety of locations and backgrounds, and need not have been former TVRC campers. TVRC-Expeditions TL’s will guide the group through their time in Wyoming, coaching students on both the “hard” and “soft” skills necessary to execute a successful backcountry excursion.
