Registration

Registration is required for this activity. Please contact leader(s).

Overview

Join us for an educational, all-day workshop covering everything you need to know for fun and safe backpacking: personal and group gear, tent site selection and set-up, food and nutrition, trip planning, and Leave No Trace principles. Presentations will be given by experienced backpackers who will have their own gear on display for you to see, compare, and ask questions about. Feedback from past attendees: "I liked the gear breakouts and the chance to talk to other backpackers one on one." "It really helped to see and touch gear, and get to see how different backpackers make different choices of gear based on what works for them personally." "Informative, personable group of instructors." The Worcester Chapter will post progressively challenging "Inner Backpacker" trips throughout the spring, summer, and fall, with registration preference given to attendees of this workshop. Program will be held in Stow, Mass. Fee discounted for AMC members; waived for active AMC leaders (any activity). To register and get the details, contact the Registrar below.
