June 20-21 Middle School White Salmon Rafting and Indian Heaven Backpacking

June 20-21 Middle School White Salmon Rafting and Indian Heaven Backpacking


This is about as much fun as you can have in two days in south-central Washington.  On Sunday we’ll travel to Trout Lake, where you’ll slip into wetsuits and toss on PFDs before you’re taught how to navigate your group’s raft through one of the most exciting half-day stretches of water in the Northwest.   On Sunday night, we will camp out, enjoying the sounds of the forest and roasting marshmallows on the campfire.  On Monday we’ll take a minimum of gear and go into Indian Heaven Wilderness for an incredible loop hike.  This is one of the best hiking destinations in the Northwest, so bring a camera!  Students should be in good physical condition. No experience is needed.

The cost of this trip is $135.  This fee covers permits, transportation, instruction, and most food.  This trip is open to all middle schoolers.  You can sign up by sending an email to Chris Potts at pottsc@Catlin.edu
