Skills Clinic: Intro to Backpacking
February 10 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm ESTFree
Backpacking is an adventure that blends hiking with backcountry camping. It lets you broaden your horizons beyond the car campground to enjoy a richer, more immersive outdoor experience. At this Skowhegan AmeriCorps Outdoor Recreation Program (SAORP) clinic, you’ll learn about gear distribution, essential items, and trip preparation. Our SAORP coaches will help you identify what to look for in fit and how to achieve that light-as-a-feather feel on your trail adventure. No previous experience is required so don’t be scared to learn about something new!
If you have any backpacking gear or camping items, you are encouraged to bring them, but it is not necessary!
