Horse & Hike: Wetland Adventure (Ages 4-10)

The Ultimate Hiking Adventure
Begin your day of hiking by exploring nature and reading maps, all while taking in the scenic views along the Dragon Trail in Newaygo County. Once you make it to Camp Henry, you’ll learn how to pack a backpack, gear and rations, before taking your second hike of the day out to our beautiful open air A-Frame campout location. You’ll set up camp, build a fire and cook dinner over the open flame with your troop. When the sun fades, prepare for a troop-led adventure: the night hike! The morning will bring your chance to break camp and ‘leave no trace’. (Camping and hiking options/distances can be adjusted for younger troops)
