This Spring Break the Ketchikan Afterschool Program (KAP) is going on an adventure! We will be leading a 5 day/4 night, 12 mile round-trip excursion into the Naha Recreation Area. This trip is open to 8 middle school youths who will be accompanied by KAP and AmeriCorps Members. This trip is FREE! We will be staying at the forest service cabins located at Jordan and Heckman Lakes, where we will practice Leave-No-Trace travel, explore our surroundings, share meals and learn about how to travel safely in the backcountry.
Backpacking: Spring Break 2022
This was our first trip and we made it, all 6 participants and 2 staff! We saw challenge, rain, mud and windfall and we returned without injury. This was the perfect trip for beginners to backpacking as the miles were short and we stayed in cabins with wood stoves. We hope to make this our standard beginner's backpacking trip and have trips throughout the year....
