WHY CHANNEL ISLANDS NATIONAL PARK?

I've been plotting a trip to CINP for over a year now, and as we finally open up again I'd love to invite others to join me on this epic experience.

My hopes for this adventure are to: 

  • Help first-time campers learn how to sleep outdoors

  • Give people a chance to enjoy camping without the planning

  • Meet & learn from more outdoor lovers

  • Have a spectacular time in Channel Islands National Park!


If the Channel Islands calls out to you too, then apply for a spot on this trip! It only takes two minutes.

WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THIS TRIP

An experienced backpacker to guide & share all of her camping tips.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED TO BRING

The goal is to give you a taste of island backpacking so in the spirit of learning the ropes, you'll need to pack:

  • Your own backpacking gear (I have recommendations for gear rentals!) 

  • Your favorite lunch meals, snacks & drinks

  • A craving for adventure

  • An open mind

  • And a sense of humor 

That's it! Got questions or suggestions? Email me at yvonne@bewilder.camp.

FAQS

WHY IS THERE AN APPLICATION?

It's a quick application, but it helps to know what everyone's experience levels are when it comes to hiking & camping. We also want to create an environment where everyone feels safe, open & welcome on this trip so learning more about you helps us create a positive experience for everyone.

WHAT IF WE GET BAD WEATHER?

Weather can be unpredictable in the Channel Islands, and on any outdoor adventure. We'll make the trip happen whether there's fog or rain, but if the ferry or kayaking tour is canceled due to weather conditions, you'll get a 100% refund. 

HOW ABOUT LAST-MINUTE CANCELLATIONS?

Life happens, but since this is a group trip, we care about whether you're there! Try your best to clear your schedule before committing to this adventure. Partial refunds (50%) will be offered to those who accidentally miss the ferry or have to cancel more than a week before the trip due to an illness or injury. Full refunds will be provided for those who have a change of plans at least 30 days before the trip.

WHERE DO WE PARK OVERNIGHT?

Good question! Island Packers offers ferry ticket holders a free parking permit so you can leave your car at Ventura Harbor overnight.  

I'VE GOT MORE QUESTIONS!
