Backpacking 101 Course

Come out and learn about topics relating to beginning backpacking and day hiking.

 

We will cover items you should carry and explore different types of gear.

 

Please bring a notebook and pen for notes, water, snacks and lunch.

 

We will have different sleeping gear setup for you to explore as well as a range of backpacks and other gear for you to look at.

 

We will be scheduling an overnight backpack trip for those that will be interested in venturing out into nature for the first time or for those seasoned veterans to backpacking.

      The camping will not be the same day as this course, just that we will see about planning a trip out in the near future.
