New to camping? Crunched on time? This trip is the trip for you! Come join us on this popular overnight excursion to the beautiful Anza-Borrego State Park. We will explore mud caves, palm oases, wildflowers and vistas. Anza-Borrego offers spectacular desert views, slot canyons and unique wildlife, not to mention a killer view of the expansive night sky, free of city light pollution. Please prepare for early mornings and late nights. While we'll plan to enjoy the sun in the desert, we'll be camping in the mountains just 30 mins away allowing our group to experience the desert in a unqiue way. We will be hiking several trails both Friday and Saturday, as well as taking an hour to sight see and snag photos of the amazing Galleta Meadow Statues. Depending on whether, we may even have time for some hot springs so be sure to pack a swim suit just in case. Students will also learn and apply the basics of outdoor leadership, stewardship, and environmental responsibilities through Leave No Trace principles. This will be an adventure you do not want to miss out on!”
