TREK Adventures have been created around the ideas of providing a unique experience for teenagers to experience outdoor recreation and educating them about outdoor skills and conservation! We are happy to partner with Missouri State Parks who will help provide support and equipment for TREKs. This program is an excellent opportunity to get your group to explore outdoor recreation outside of Jefferson City while canoeing and primitive camping!
Groups will be taken to a scenic Missouri river where they will canoe for around 20 - 30 miles in 3 days and camp for 2 nights. There is no better way to spend the summer days and evenings than on the river while having fun and learning outdoor skills! Transportation, meals, canoes, paddles, life vests and camping equipment is all provided by JC Park and Missouri State Parks.
The Current River
Where are we camping? The first night we will camp on a gravel bar off of the Current River on National Park Land and on the second night we will camp at Current River State Park.
