Outfit Expedition

Dive into a summer of Southwest fun with the Outfit Expedition!

Outfit is a perfect experience for kids with a sense of adventure and willingness to try new things. Appropriate for anyone from complete camping novices to experienced outdoor adventurers, we will start the trek with a week at Basecamp followed by a few days exploring wild places of New Mexico. We will return to Basecamp for 2 days to close the trek, reflect on our time together, and enjoy a final campfire. By the end, trekkers come away with new friends, outdoor skills, great memories, and self-confidence after two weeks of independence and exploration.

While at Basecamp, trekkers will have the opportunity to learn new skills like metalsmithing, animal tracking, mountain biking, farming, cooking, music, and rock climbing. Basecamp will also be the perfect opportunity to learn outdoor living and camp craft skills before putting them into practice while camping, hiking, and exploring New Mexico. Each year the itinerary varies, though a sunrise summit of Mount Taylor is typically a highlight (although most trekkers don’t see it that way at 4 am, only afterwards)! See the Trek Description below for a sample itinerary.

“Wait…I have to choose a high point? Just one? Well, although I liked everything, I’ll name a few high points.
1) The road trip… Every day (and night) was amazing! 
2) Rock climbing. Simply amazing, especially when I made it to the top. 
3) Silversmithing. It was challenging, fun, and I got to take home an awesome ring that I made myself. 
4) The shower after the road loop.”
