Deep in the mountains of the Telluride area is a remote and elusive backcountry cabin and Cabin Fever is on a mission to find it! This impressive mountain retreat will be accessed through an enjoyable exploratory backpacking trip and will provide trekkers with secluded sanctuary for multiple nights of backcountry fun! Because the cabin is fully stocked and ready for our arrival we only need to carry a few personal items of clothing and some group food making for light travel through the deep forests that seclude our future base camp. Our objectives will shed light on proper packing for trekking, route finding and safe backcountry travel. Once we have arrived and settled in there will be plenty of time for games by the fire, delicious mountain meals and day hikes to surrounding peaks.

*NEW! All participants will receive Telluride Academy backpacks, sleeping bags and sleeping pads while participating in this program! Gear will be used by instructors to teach proper packing techniques on the first day and will go home with students the night before their overnight backpacking trips. We ask that you bring an empty duffel bag on the morning of your overnights so your child's gear can be taken home easily at the end of the week.
