Intro to Backpacking Course
May 4, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - May 18, 2021 @ 8:00 pm$65.00
The backcountry can be an intimidating place, but it doesn’t have to be! Join our Adventure Bus intro course to gain knowledge, confidence, experience & meet your next backcountry hiking buddy!
During this course we will focus on smart decision making, gear checklists, meal planning, trip planning, water treatment, animal safety & leave no trace ethics! We will follow info sessions with small hikes carrying our packs to help us train and learn how to adjust our packs.
Sounds like an adventure you would like to take part in?
This course is meant for people who have hiked before and want to go to start extending their adventures into overnight hiking trips. You will want to be able to carry a backpack that is ideally a third your weight and carry it uphill. You might have even tried backpacking before and you want to become better, more self sufficient and make better choices in the backcountry.
If you don’t have gear yet, no problem! We will be giving gear demos, have spare packs and this is a great place to start if you have only dreamt of spending nights in the backcountry or you’ve gone with friends & now want to get your gear & plan your vacations around these epic trips!!
Tuesday May 4th, 11th & 18th 6pm- 8pm ( with an additional actual backpacking night scheduled at later date) . Details for each evening will be emailed to participants.
The group size will be kept small at only 6 participants. All current Covid guidelines strictly followed.
