Backpacking Trip with Onward & Upward

July 19 @ 7:00 am - July 26 @ 12:30 pm AKDT

Backpacking Trip w/ Onward & Upward

July 19-26

This 8-day course is the ultimate backcountry adventure! The first morning is spent in town on a low and high rope challenge course where you and your expedition team will meet and explore concepts in problem-solving, decision making, and relationship building. We then head to our base camp to prepare for our expedition. Lessons on rationing, bear safety, and packing a backpack will all be a part of our expedition preparation. We’ll stay the first night at our base camp; testing out our tents and sleeping systems and the next morning we’ll depart for our off-trail adventure! Throughout the expeditions, students will learn and practice expeditionary skills such as navigation, route finding, risk management, teamwork, and leadership skills.

Tuition: $600- Scholarships available. For information about scholarships, contact Matt at connect@thrivematsu.org
