Basic Backpacking — the second part of our three-step wilderness progression, designed for individuals — teaches everything you need to know to begin a multi-night outdoor adventure. Gain the knowledge you’ll need to make important decisions about gear, clothing and trip planning, then hit the trail to practice and hone skills. To earn Basic Backpacking, you must complete all segments of the training: classroom instruction, group day hike and backpacking trip. 
Registration fees cover insurance and permits. Backpackers will need to contribute additional amounts to cover expenses such as transportation, food and equipment rental/purchase, dependent on the trip. Pre-trip planning meetings include those shown below; other dates TBD. Prerequisites: Completion of Wilderness Hiking.
