The Twin Lakes Youth Wilderness Campout is one of the highlights of the year. 2023’s campout will mark 20 years for the event. 12-17 year old youth are invited unaccompanied to a weekend of fun in the lakes and lessons in science. Youth under 12 years old are welcome with an adult chaperone. Guest educators share their knowledge on botany, astronomy, wildlife biology and other topics in natural resources. We hike, we swim, we share stories around the campfire and prepare all of our meals in the outdoors. The campsite is located 1 mile in from the parking spot. Gear available for those who need it.

The event takes place on the final weekend of July every year. In the past, members of Phoenix Youth Corps and residents of Casa de Belen have also been invited to participate.

If you know a youth who loves the outdoors, be sure to get them involved with this event! The memories made around the campfire and the lake are truly unforgettable. Contact our AmeriCorps for more information and an application!
