Wilderness explorations...

Hidden Valley Camp, is one of the few privately owned wilderness areas in Lawrence, purchased in 1956 for Girl Scout use.

The camp is semi-primitive. It is not a city park. Sturdy shoes are essential, as are a spirit of adventure, curiosity, and wonder.

Hidden Valley has shelters, a cabin, trails, campsites, latrines and UACT (Universally Accessible Composting Toilet). Year-round camping is possible—if you prepare yourself and your troop appropriately. There’s wildlife to find, both flora and fauna, if you know when and where to look.
