About the event
This is Part 1 of our Intro to Backpacking Course.
You can take the complete 3 part series (taking place June 1st, June 8th, and June 15th), or you can drop in on the aspects of backpacking you want to learn more about.
Backpacking is all about travelling light to be able to experience remote areas of nature. There are many different ways to backpack, but the essential gear is the same.
In this session, you'll learn all about what backpacking is all about through exploring the gear and how to use it. We'll share a simple way to understand and group all the different items you need, give you hands-on time to try out assembling tents and your sleeping gear, and show you how to pack the items efficiently into your backpack.
We can't wait to introduce to the wonderful world of backpacking!
