Group M – Day Hike: Kakiat Loop

Friday, July 30
Kakiat Park

This hike follows wetlands along the Mahwah River to the steep mountainside of The Ramapo Escarpment. The climb reveals beautiful vistas with views of the NYC skyline on the way up and follows a cascading brook on the way down.

During hikes we learn proper hiking techniques, safety, natural and human history, Leave No Trace Principles, tick awareness, trail etiquette and more.

Campers will wear their face masks on the bus to get to and from the hike. On the trail, they will be able to hike in the open fresh air without their masks, putting them on if they pass another hiker outside of our group.

We will cancel a hike if the weather is too hot, it’s raining heavily, or there is a serious threat of thunderstorms. If possible, all canceled hikes are rescheduled. If a hike is canceled, your camper will be scheduled for a full day of activities at camp, so be sure they bring a swimsuit to camp every day, even on hike days.
