Be sure to ask each Kansas Wilderness Camp about the amount of wilderness instruction and the overall intensity of their wilderness program.
Some Top Kansas Wilderness Camps offer rigorous daily wilderness training and lots of intensive wilderness experience. Other great Kansas Camps offer wilderness and nature studies as an elective or recreational activity with much less training and intensity.
