Have you ever wanted to try out backpacking? This class offers the chance to try out equipment and see how it works, take a short hike where we try carrying a full backpack, and learn backpacking tips from a seasoned backpacking guide and CNC educator, Lann.

Participants will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions and experiment with gear. We’ll also cook hot chocolate on a backpacking stove! This program is designed for adults and older kids.
