Basecamp Odyssey is designed to be less remote and less physically demanding than the Backcountry Odyssey programs, but it still provides plenty of fun and adventure while learning new skills and making new friends. Typical activities often include day hikes of about four miles or less with a light pack, wading in rivers, visiting waterfalls and scenic overlooks, group field games, rafting trips with local outfitters, star gazing sunset hikes, standup paddle boarding, introductory rock climbing and more. Your group returns each evening to a developed campground with access to bathrooms and showers.
Spend three days and two nights enjoying the solitude of the North Carolina mountains as you get to know your fellow crew members. Learn new skills such as how to read a topographic map and use a compass during the day and how to cook dinner on a backpacking stove or set up your crews’ tent at night. You have the opportunity to work with your crew to overcome challenges deepening your new Davidson relationships.
