Join your instructor, Clyde Carter for an introductory course for men of all ages and fitness levels. This class is for men who want to deepen their backpacking and outdoor-living skills. Learn the basics from trip planning, equipment selection, camp craft, nutrition and camp cooking, shelter and site selection, map reading, and outdoor ethics. Each class is two hours in length and meets at 4703 Island Ford Rd., Brevard, NC.
Class dates are March 8, 15 & 22 from 6:00-8:00pm
Then we will gather at 9:00am Saturday morning March 26th to finalize packing your pack and then head out into the forest to practice the skills you’ve learned in class. You will backpack several miles, have lunch, set up camp, gather water, hang a bear bag, and then hike (without backpacks) to enjoy a beautiful view and sunset before returning to camp for the night. On Sunday you will hike back out to the trailhead returning home between 1:00-3:00pm on March 27th.
Cost of $195 covers all three classes and the overnight trip.
