Basic Backpacking Course *Hellhole Canyon* Feb. 5-6, 2022

Sat Jan 08, 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM PST
Ambassadors, Seniors, Volunteers, Cadettes

If you have completed the Wildernss Hiker class and want to go the next progression, backpacking is the second step in the training series. Training includes an all-day classroom session, a day of mostly moderate hiking with the group, a short meeting to check gear and pack weights, and an overnight trip to practice learned skills. Anza-Borrego Desert State Park makes a perfect location for a winter training, offering mostly mild weather for day hiking and crisp, cold nights. If we are lucky, clear skies will give us a stunning view of the stars.
