We will introduce fundamental backcountry skills and ethics in this 4.5 day backpacking focused camp! Skills covered will include water purification/filtration, food planning, navigation, backcountry cooking, wildlife safety, Leave No Trace Principles, and more! Each day we will introduce and practice backcountry skills with our camp culminating in an overnight stay at Louie Lake Thursday night! Breakfast and dinner will be provided for our overnight trip. Campers will also receive their own map and compass to take home! Here is a suggested packing list for day hiking as well as our overnight trip!
