Blue Teen Overnight Trip

Welcome! We’re so excited to offer this program for Blue Teens, because we believe it is a great addition to the program that provides a creative, tailored, independent experience for each weeks’ Blue Teen group.

Below, you will find a general list of items to pack for overnight. Keep in mind that what is packed in your backpack will be carried on your back out to the campsite (sleeping bags and other large items (instruments) can be taken in a camp vehicle to the site); don’t overpack! Staffers and teens will cook over a campfire for a “fourth meal” or small second dinner, dessert, and will have snacks available.

Download and complete the Emergency Card below.

Teens will help determine activities that they will take part in. Teens will return from the overnight in time to eat breakfast in the Dining Hall on Friday. If you have questions, please feel free to contact michigania@umich.edu.
