2023 Queens River – Youth (Full)

Volunteer Trail Work Project

Loading Events

In the Sawtooth Wilderness near Atlanta, Idaho, ITA will be hosting a youth (ages 14-18) trail work weekend clearing up the Little Queens and Queens River Trails. Volunteers will camp at the Queens River trailhead for the weekend, returning to camp each evening where we’ll have a volunteer cook to help prepare meals.   

With guidance from crew leaders, volunteers will be involved in all aspects of camp life. This includes helping set out breakfast and lunch items, assisting the cook with dinner and dishes, ensuring water and sanitation supplies are available, and ensuring tools are accounted for.  

Volunteers are expected to adhere to Leave No Trace best practices and project safety expectations set by crew leaders.
