Take the first step in your wilderness adventure! Designed for individuals, our three-step progression safely takes girls and adults out of the campground and into the woods. Wilderness Hiking covers outdoor skills and knowledge, and is a prerequisite for the Basic Backpacking course and Advanced Backpacking trips. Spend your morning in the classroom and your afternoon on the trail, learning about safety, proper gear and equipment, the Leave No Trace ethic, and building independence in girls. This class lays a strong foundation for more extraordinary adventures. Fees cover course materials and a “10 Essentials” starter kit. Classes start on council property, then move to local trails for a short hike.
