An introductory backpacking workshop for all ages and all fitness levels. This workshop and backpacking trip is for women who want to deepen their connection to the wilderness and build their confidence in the outdoors. Learn the basics from trip planning, equipment selection, camp craft, nutrition and camp cooking, shelter and site selection, map reading, and outdoor ethics. Students are encouraged to take a hands-on approach and learn cooperatively with their classmates, sharing their experience and enthusiasm. At the end of the in-class training, you will pack your backpack, lace up your hiking boots, and put your knowledge into practice with an optional overnight backpacking trip in the forest. Loaner gear available. Full-day workshop on Friday, April 17, followed by an overnight backpacking trip on April 18-19. Visit: islandfordadventures.com to sign up.
