Date and Time
Saturday, April 7, 2018
Registration is required for this activity.
Please contact leader(s).
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
Program will be held in Stow, Mass. Fee discounted for AMC
members; waived for active AMC leaders (any activity). To
