Great outdoor adventures for girls and adults!
Advanced Backpacking Trips ($20)
Designed for individuals, this third step in training safely takes girls and adults on unforgettable wilderness adventures, where they'll enjoy the majesty of nature along with the camaraderie of fellow backpacking enthusiasts, while building skills to a higher level. Registration fees cover insurance and permits. Hikers will need to contribute additional amounts to cover trip expenses such as transportation, food and equipment rental/purchase. Carpooling is encouraged. Pre-trip planning meetings include those shown below; other dates TBD.
Prerequisite: Completion of Wilderness Hiking Class and Basic Backpacking Course. Some trips also require current CPR/First Aid training. Evolution Valley has the additional prerequisite of a previous trip of 9000ft or more. The Mt. San Jacinto basic backpacking class fulfills this requirement.

Youth and Adult Leadership
We welcome new adult and youth leaders to help teach our hiking and backpacking courses. You must be trained one level above your teaching status (e.g., basic backpack trained to teach Wilderness Hiking).
Youth and adult volunteers are a tremendous asset on any hiking and backpacking trip. Our youth leaders particularly benefit from the opportunity to teach others while upholding the high standards of our program, and sharing not just their knowledge, but their passion for the outdoors. Please contact Gabby Coburn at (619) 610-0816 or email@example.com for more information on how to volunteer.
