    Hiking Summer Programs

    Hiking Summer Programs can take participants all around the globe. There are countless landscapes to explore, from the Rocky Mountains to the red rocks of Utah and the jungles of Central America. Often hosted by group travel organizations, these programs offer middle and high school students the opportunity to learn about nature and bond with peers over multiple days of hikes over varied terrain. Participants can learn CPR, wilderness first aid, and lifeguard skills. Expert guides offer education in ecology, conservation and wildlife biology. There is also plenty of sightseeing and fun, whether students are hiking mountains, meadows, forests, beaches or alongside rivers, lakes and ponds. These programs often combine hiking with other activities like camping, birding, canoeing, rafting, caving, rock climbing and photography. Housing options are varied, depending on the program host, and include camping by tent, cabins, hotels and home stays.
