There are "summer camps" - and then there is camping in the summer, while backpacking across the Sierra over the course of a week to the summit of Mt. Whitney (14,505 feet), the tallest mountain in the contiguous US. Come for an inspirational presentation by Central Valley native Chris Casado and Clovis educator Mike Murphy, co-founders of the Mt. Whitney Youth Challenge. For over 20 years Mike has been leading students from Gettysburg Elementary in Clovis on week-long treks across Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks to the summit of Mt. Whitney. Learn how this experience has changed lives for 100s of kids across the Central Valley, and how your kids, too, can reach new heights this summer.
