For Campers Entering Grades 8–10
2017 information will be available in November.
The Bighorn Mountains of Wyoming offer an excellent introduction to mountain backpacking for confident first-timers or experienced backpackers. After several days of training at Widji, groups drive by van for two days to the Bighorns in north central Wyoming. Campers spend approximately eight days hiking at elevations of 8,000-10,000 feet. Bighorns trips operate in the Bighorn National Forest.
Each group is four to six campers, led by two Widji trail counselors. Groups must be prepared for a variety of weather—including the occasional snow shower.
