Lake Michigan Island Camping

TREKKER PROGRAM


As Trekkers, campers have the opportunity to backpack around beautiful North Manitou Island in Lake Michigan. The journey begins with a ferry ride from Leland before the girls take off hiking and camping out around the island for four days. This introduction to backcountry camping includes easy days of hiking on flat, sandy trails and beautiful beach scenery at campsites on Lake Michigan. The Trekker program is the ultimate introduction to the wilderness adventure experience and the trip provides ample time for cabin bonding experiences. While in camp, the girls will get to participate in all of the fun on-site challenges and activities offered.
