What is an Ecosystem Explorer?
An explorer is someone who searches for and investigates the unknown for the sake of discovery and understanding. Explorers are full of curiosity and courage that lead them to new and exciting places. During Discovery Camp, the Ecosystem Explorers will venture off trail, wander along drainages, and climb mountains to discover things and places they didn’t know before.
Ecosystem Explorers should come to camp with an open mind and a sense of adventure as they push their physical and mental limits to uncover the mysteries of Denali.
