Mount Mitchell Backpacking

Please note any REQUIRED pre-trip meetings and registration deadlines for Venture trips. 

Join Venture from Friday, March 16 to Sunday, March 18 as we look to summit the tallest mountain east of the Mississippi River: 6,684-foot Mount Mitchell. 

In the Appalachian Mountains, the weather can be severe, even when Spring is blooming in Charlotte, so bring a sense of adventure and tolerance for stout conditions. 

Learn and practice camp-craft skills while navigating through this enchanted landscape. 

Come prepared to challenge yourself while working together with a supportive team on this end-of-winter backpacking trip.

Pre-Trip Meeting: Wednesday, March 14 from 5-7 p.m. at the Venture Office
Pre-trip meeting is required to be able to attend Venture trip. 

Registration Deadline: Noon on Wednesday, March 14

Register online on OrgSync.
