This introductory backpacking course is an experientially-based excursion focusing on the basic skills necessary to safely plan, prepare for, and embark on short-stay overnight trips to wild lands. Students will carry everything they need in a 35-40 pound backpack up to ten miles a day over the rocky, forested terrain.
This is a backcountry trip: Participants on this trip will sleep in tents and there will be no access to showers, running water, or other modern amenities. Trip leaders will teach participants how to dispose of waste properly by following Leave No Trace ethics.
