LandPaths: Intro to Backpacking Camp for Teens
June 12, 2017 - June 15, 2017$300 - $450
LandPaths is proud to offer this new Backcountry Basics- Intro to Backpacking Camp, where your young outdoor enthusiasts will have a chance to dive deep into learning all the skills necessary to be self-sufficient on the trail. We will build camaraderie among our team while we will learn all about backcountry trip planning and safety measures, basic backpacking skills and gear (leave no trace, water filtration, sanitation and good hygiene practices, how to choose a campsite, pack you backpack, prepare food, basic health and safety concerns, intro to orienteering-compass and map reading skills), and even how to build a functional debris shelter. We will also deepen our understanding of the natural history and ecology of northwestern Sonoma County as we create a comprehensive and personalized field journal.
