Sugarloaf Ridge 'Introduction to Backpacking'
Join Inga Aksamit for a two-hour classroom class going over introductory information in the first hour and looking at examples of backpacking gear in the next hour. The instructors will bring a fully packed backpack, then unpack it so you can see what's in it. No actual hiking is involved in this instructional session.
The goal of the class is to introduce participants to modern backpacking techniques and equipment, which have generally reduced the expected weight that must be carried to enjoy a wilderness experience. If you have never backpacked before, or if it has been decades since you backpacked, or if you've read the book, "Wild" and are inspired to start backpacking this class is for you. Tips for all age groups will be provided, from backpacking with children to considerations for seniors.
