Adventure Demos

Basic of Backpacking

  • October 10

Bring your bike and meet in OA office before class begins.
$5.00 - CRWC Member | 5:30 – 8:30 pm

Backpacking is an adventure that blends hiking with backcountry camping. It lets you broaden your horizons beyond the car campground to enjoy a richer, and immersive outdoor experience. A key distinction from day hiking is the size of your pack—your backpack that you must carry all of life’s essentials on your back so you must choose those essentials with care. In this class, you will learn how to pack a backpack, and properly fit a backpack on your back for comfort.
