This overnight trip will provide a perfect introduction to backpacking in the Southern Appalachian Mountains, where you and your team will carry everything you need to live outdoors for a weekend on your backs. We’ll meet bright and early on Saturday and you’ll learn how to pack your backpack for accessibility and comfort. Throughout the trip, you’ll learn and practice skills such as map and compass navigation, cooking over a small and lightweight backpacking stove, and following Leave No Trace environmental ethics while hiking through a beautiful natural landscape. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience wilderness and unplug from technology for an inspiring weekend!
