8-Day Backpacking Program

Course Description
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.

Student Eligibility
Students for this course must be able to hike off-trail 3-5 miles a day over uneven terrain with a 30-40 lb pack.​ They also must have the cognitive ability to follow directions specific to managing risks associated with backcountry travel such as staying together in a group, using a camp stove, setting up tents and tarps, etc., etc.

Our COVID mitigation plan requires students to submit a negative COVID-19 test result that is dated within 72 hours of the program start date. Students will also complete a health screening consisting of a temperature reading with a no-touch digital thermometer and health questionnaire
