Experience The Challenge and Adventure!

“It is a challenge that will make you a better person and you get to become part of memories that last forever.”

A quote from a former Ranger's participant.

2024 Rangers Wilderness Trips

Separate gender trips for ages 14-16

This backcountry journey challenges campers both physically and mentally as they backpack through a section of the Appalachian Trail and canoe through the beautiful Delaware River National Recreation area.  Campers are given the opportunity to build leadership skills, courage, confidence, friendship, and a deeper appreciation of the outdoors.

Rangers is a capstone of the Ockanickon and Matollionequay camp programs, and spends the first and last part of the session at camp, sleeping in rustic cabins.  The entire experience is 14 days long, 9 days of which are spent adventuring off-site in the wilderness and sleeping in tents.

All trips are led by experienced instructors who take part in extensive training and hold certifications in Wilderness First Aid, CPR, and Lifeguarding.
