Year after year, these programs prove to be a great opportunity for local teens to make new friends while learning about: wilderness first aid, navigation (map/compass and GPS), Leave No Trace wilderness ethics, local ecology, geology, backcountry cooking and nutrition. Participants will backpack between two and nine miles per day and participate in a service learning project improving part of the Tahoe Rim Trail.
Gear, food and transportation will be provided for all participants. All programs are instructed by experienced and well-trained staff from the TRTA, TINS and ARC. Scholarships are available. To determine your eligibility, contact Hayley by phone at 298-0238 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

For younger adventurers, there are the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science (TINS) summer camps. TINS, with support from the Tahoe Rim Trail Association, is offering summer day camps for children ages 6 to 12. While your older teens are out enjoying a YBCC adventure, send your younger ones to investigate bugs, forests and mud through these hands on TINS summer camps.
All day camps are instructed by experienced and well trained TINS staff. Member rates and scholarships are available. For more information about TINS Summer Camps, including all the dates and locations, visit www.tinsweb.org or contact Ben at firstname.lastname@example.org.
