Backpacking & Camping Trip

August 6, 2015 - 7:45 PM

A group of five Denver City Lax participants went on a week long backpacking and camping trip on the Oh Be Joyful Trail near Crested Butte, CO.

City Lax partnered with Big City Mountaineers, a non-profit organization who specializes in outdoor wilderness expeditions for urban youth, in order to make the trip happen.



The 7 day trip combines a mentoring programming into an outdoor wilderness expedition where each member of the trip feels empowered.  Each participant is physically challenged, and mentally challenged to think critically about their community, responsibility, and their personal self-discovery.

Thank you to Big City Mountaineers and the amazing trip leaders (Mike Wagner, Phil Mesdag, Zach Taylor, Mike Reilly, and Dan Reilly) who made the trip a special experience!

Also, special thank you to Phil Mesdag for providing all of the great photos from the trip!
