The 2018 Backpack School is coming soon! This spring course covers the basics of backpacking and provides you the confidence and skills to enjoy this great outdoor activity. No previous backpacking experience is necessary. This course consists of eight indoor sessions starting March 30, with additional outdoor sessions through May 28.
