Program - Trip and Travel Standards Resources

Many camps provide trip or travel opportunities for their campers, either as extensions of their day or resident camp programs or as stand-alone trip or travel programs. Groups travel for three nights or more (many times in a wilderness setting) and rely on the leadership of only a few staff. Trip/travel groups do not have the stable, familiar resources of the camp community available to them. The purpose of the trip/travel standards is to help assure groups have a rewarding, safe experience in a variety of environments by highlighting the necessarily different procedures, training, expertise, and plans.
