More About Augusta Wilderness Trips

On-Trail Cuisine

Who knew hiking food could be this good? Augusta puts intention into everything. That’s why we serve organic, mostly local, sustainable food and meet any strict dietary restrictions.

Philosophy Matters

Our trips are about more than having a good time outside. Participants learn deep interpersonal skills from the most well-trained camp staff in the country.

Hear What They Think

We’re proud of the impressions we leave. Read testimonials from campers, parents, and staff. How did they like it, after all? What did they learn? Would they do it all over again?

Augusta is more than just wilderness trips. Learn about what we do and some of the ways we’re different. Meet our staff and learn more about our home base, Camp Augusta.
