Spending a night in the great outdoors can be an incredible bonding experience for groups and families, but there is a lot more gear and coordination involved compared to a day hike or BBQ and often more rules and regulations. Come check out the different types of gear and learn what you should check out when planning a trip. While gear comes in a range of prices, very few people need the most expensive stuff and sometimes the cheapest gear is great. Learn what will work for you and your group and how to care for your gear so that even inexpensive stuff will last you for years. We will also review planning essentials like permits, reservations, campfires, and more so that you can be confident you have planned for a great trip regardless of what the unexpected brings.
