Backpacking and Camping Classes

Backpacking and Camping

We love family camping, more rugged camping in wildlife management areas and backpacking. All three of these are different degrees of camping that we practice regularly with our kids, and we want for you to have the same fun adventures safely and confidently!


We have programs scheduled throughout the year, but also book school, church and individual groups and summer camps for these awesome programs. Please contact us if you are interested in this for your group.


Backpacking 101 Class   

Have you wondered what should be packed into a backpack and how to fit it inside for comfort and convenience? We will cover essential items to pack for backpacking (as well as what is not necessary), techniques to limit the weight and distribute the bulk of your pack for comfort without jeopardizing safety, how to minimize risk within a group backpacking trip, discuss leave no trace principles, how to dispose of waste properly and discuss factors in choosing an appropriate campsite. This is a hands-on session and participants will have the opportunity to go on a short hike. Feel free to bring your own pack, but you are not required to bring a backpack for this class. 

Backpacking Expeditions

Are you excited after taking an introduction to backpacking course and want to put what you've learned into action? Or perhaps you would like the assurance of having a certified wilderness first responder (WFR) and experts in wilderness survival joining your backpacking adventure. Check our schedule for our backpacking expeditions. They are a ton of fun and you will learn a lot along the way!
