“My 13 yo son just finished his 2nd summer camp with Lasting Adventures in Yosemite and both were amazing experiences. From a parent perspective, they provided plenty of communication before and during the trip so I knew he was in good hands. From a kids perspective, this adventure taught him skills he may not have otherwise learned, built up his self confidence and independence and fostered a love for the outdoors. He already can’t wait to do this camp again, maybe even at a different location. This camp is worth every penny!”

Amazing summer camp for teens

“My 13 year old daughter participated in the 7-Day summer camp in Yosemite and, WOW, is all I can say. I was nervous, but the staff was quick to respond via email to all my questions. She had the time of her life and she can’t wait to do it again next summer. Thank you Lasting Adventures!”

Can’t Wait to Do It Again!

“During the last three days of our trip, we climbed Clouds Rest and Half Dome, which were both extremely powerful. Though the trek was hard, the guides kept morale up with jokes and motivation. (My fellow campers and I) grew close as a family. There is no reason why I would not recommend this trip, and because of this I have done trips with Lasting Adventures three times, with a total of thirty-two days!”

13-Day Backpacking Trip – Was an Amazing Experience!

“The camp counselors were incredible and really motivated, encouraged and led the kids in such a good way. They were so knowledgeable of the area, cooked amazing meals, taught the kids about nature and Yosemite, kept them safe and most importantly, helped each kid prove to themselves they could do it!”

6 Day Youth Summer Camp

“Lasting Adventures 13-day summer camp provided me with an opportunity to grow as an individual, and to fall in love with backpacking. They brought our diverse group together, expanded our knowledge, and encouraged us to reach our goals.”

Amazing time at Camp!!!!

“My 11-year-old had the most wonderful experience at this summer camp. He came home exhausted, confident, and eager to return next year! The staff took time on the phone to explain everything and make sure we were comfortable. My son returned a stronger person AND had so much fun!”

Amazing summer camp experience

“Lasting Adventures gave our teen a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I found Lasting Adventures listed as a top-10 camp in Backpacking Magazine. My 15-year-old son attended the 13-day program and said it was a life-changing experience. Lasting Adventures gives kids the confidence to know they can survive.”

Epic 12 day backpacking summer camp

“I can’t thank this company and their mission enough. I am so thankful for the guides and their never-ending enthusiasm spending time with and leading the way for the groups in Yosemite’s astounding backcountry. Not only did they go on a great tour, they were trained and certified in CPR and Wilderness First Aid. AMAZING! Best SUMMER CAMP!!!”
