This hands-on introduction to backpacking begins with Friday Night camping at the beautiful Mohican Outdoor Center. Saturday will be spent on the trail and Saturday night we'll rest at a wilderness campsite, returning to Mohican on Sunday. Skills taught include, but are not limited to: how to pack a backpack; layered clothing for a variety of weather conditions; navigation with maps; knots; and setting up camp.
