Pioneer trips are designed for participants who are looking for a slightly more challenging trip where they can develop their budding leadership skills and build real character. These trips follow some of the older heritage routes, used by Frost Valley for decades. Campers come prepared, in moderate-to-good shape, and with a willingness to have fun in the woods.
