Are you ready to leave the front country and the crowds behind? Backpacking is a great way to experience nature in more remote settings. In this workshop, you will develop the skills you need to head out on your own and eventually lead a group yourself. We will introduce you to the planning and logistics, various gear options available, how to pack a backpack, and things to do to stay as safe as possible. Remember, backpacking is just camping where you carry your gear. It doesn’t have to be complicated and it doesn’t have to be a long hike. This workshop is ideally a short backpacking trip that will give you the chance to experience it all as a learning experience.
