Once you’ve chosen a trip, click “Submit.” You’ll be sent a simple Q&A form asking about your experience level, what gear you have, what gear you’ll need, food restrictions, and a little more about who you are.

Never camped before? Excellent! Are you a seasoned hiker? Tell us about your recent trips! Are you comfortable in groups, or do you take time to warm up? What makes you laugh? What makes you tick? There are no wrong answers.

Our goal is to secure the best possible group dynamic, while bringing together the perfect blend of experienced and non-experienced campers. While we aim to operate on a first come, first serve basis, if you aren’t selected for a trip, we’ll do our best to offer you first right of refusal on another trip of your choosing.
