During the Trip


You will wake up early to help prepare breakfast and complete camp tasks. After breakfast, you'll prepare for the day. This could be packing up camp for backpacking, sorting gear for climbing or a number of other activities.


Where ever you are with your crew, you'll have lots to learn and talk about with your new friends as you move through the day and adventure in the North Carolina mountains.


You'll help with evening camp tasks, which may include cooking dinner, to starting a fire. You might play games, go star gazing, or just hang out with your crew.

Last Day of the Session

Wake up early to a special breakfast. Come back to Davidson Outdoors to clean and put away gear. Spend your last few hours debriefing your experience with your newly-made friends. Enjoy an Odyssey-wide closing ceremony before returning home.
