rock climbing and repelling, sailing,
windsurfing, and water-skiing,

hip wreck; and plenty of honest to

Outpost Camp

"Where the Feelings
Always Remain"

Tit 's summer there were two co-ed

programs run for teens entering
9th, 10th, & 11th grades. The first
program, Canadian Wilderness,
consisted of 18 teenagers entering 9th
grade. This group did a total of four
exciting wilderness trips. Two were white
water canoe trips where they learned
how to shoot rapids and were able see
moose, hawks, loons, owls and lots of
other wildlife in their natural habitat.
The other two trips were hiking trips
along the beautiful coast of Lake
Superior. On these trips the groups
encountered beautiful scenery,
waterfalls, wildlife, and the Northern
Lights.

The second program, Resident Agree,
consisted of fifteen teenagers entering
10th and 11th grade. This group not only
did canoe and hiking trips but they also
helped build a new game room at camp.
With the help of a local carpenter they
cleared the land, poured the foundation,
and built the new addition from floor to
roof. We ended the session by putting up
a plaque with everyone's name on it.

Any camper that attends Agree Outpost
also gets to participate in rock climbing
and repelling, sightseeing and souvenir
shopping, solo overnights, cooking their
own homemade meals, windsurfing,
kayaking, sailing and more.

Western

Alaska

"An Awesome
Experience"

`A Once in a Li etime
Experience"

e had a long ride to Colorado,
but we had fun. We hung out on
the duffles, played Euchre, and
had some great discussions. The hike in
Rocky Mountain National Park was great!
The views were amazing, and sliding
down the snowfields was wild! Then it
was off to Aspen for rafting and biking.
No injuries and lots of memories. Arches
was cool, even though it was hot. We did
some great day hikes in Zion, especially
the Narrows and Angel's Landing. Finally,
we were heading towards our big hiking
trip in the Tetons. Four days and three
nights hiking in the mountains. After our
hike, the showers felt great, and the
pizza in Jackson Hole tasted tremendous!
We moved on to see the bison and elk in
Yellowstone, then we started towards
home. But first, a few days in South
Dakota to get down and dirty in the
coves, and do some volunteer work for
the park service. Excitement and sadness
combined as we arrived in Michigan. We
spent our last night remembering all the
great times, wishing they would never
end.

W

Although it seems like yesterday when
the trip ended, plans are well underway
for Western '93. Interest has been high,
and trips are nearly sold out. See you on
the Rockies.

1993 will be better than ever. We will be
going White Water Rafting, Sea Kayaking,
hiking the Agawa Canyon and visiting the
famous Ojibway Indian Pictographs. The
feeling and friendships that one makes at
Agree lasts a lifetime.

I

t was a long haul to the Canadian
Rockies, but well worth the wait.
Plain of the 6 glaciers was great, and
we had another wonderful parking lot
meal. The drive to the coast was
beautiful, with mountains, and
moonrises. We hopped on the ferry, bus
and all, and relaxed as we cruised up the
Inside Passage. We approach Alaska with
anticipation and anxiety, for the Chilkoot
Trail lay ahead. It was a tough hike, but
the feeling of accomplishment and the
unbelievable scenery were worth every
blister, every aching joint. To soothe our
battered bodies, we headed to Takhini
Hot Springs. The Kenai was our next
destination, with a chance to do some
trail work, fishing, and going to a great
bakery. We headed North to Denali State
Park, hiking for 3 days and 2 nights on
the tundra of the Kseugi Ridge. A little
farther north was Denali National Park,
with lots of moose, caribou, and grizzly,
as well as the huge image of Mt.
McKinley, towering over everything! Next
stop, Haines and a chance to learn the
ways of the past at the Chilkat Cultural
Center, and gorge ourselves at Porcupine
Pete's. We boarded the ferry and headed
to Juneau, where we kayaked, fished,
observed seals, eagles, and bears, and
had a great time. We hopped the ferry
back to the mainland, watching whales
and dolphins swim along the way. We
headed back to the Canadian Rockies
(Jasper to be exact) and did some day
hikes. Next a dose of civilization at its
craziest, the water park in the West
Edmonton Mall. A long drive home, a
couple days in the U.P., and we'had a
sweet memory of the 46 greatest days of
our lives.

Plans are already underway for Alaska
93, and the trips are looking good, and
they are nearly sold out. However, if the
demand warrants, we will look into
developing a 3rd trip.
