Camp Pepin is fortunate to be located in an area where outside activities abound. The bluffs, woods, rivers, lakes, and trails provide a wonderful playground for those that enjoy adventures in the out-of-doors. During each trail camp, our staff will lead overnight trip experiences that teach skills and cover distances that are age-appropriate and tailored to the physical stature and experience of their campers.
Have you always liked the view from a high spot? Are you willing to work a little to get there? Join the Trail Blazers to explore local natural areas on 1-3 mile day hikes with a light pack. Learn the basics of camp craft and Leave No Trace ethics as you work with your team on the trail preparing for your overnight backpacking trip. All of this will be provided alongside the traditional camp experience. If you have more experience on multi-day hiking trips and want something more, check out the North Shore Trail Blazers.
