Event Details

This 3-part series will take participants through the entire process of preparing for a long-distance backpacking trip. Classes will cover planning, equipment, logistics, making your own DIY camp stove, and the series will finish with a backpacking day trip (10 miles round trip) in the Waterloo Recreation Area.

Part 3: Backpacking Day Trip

Put all of your new knowledge (and equipment) to use during this backpacking day trip. Participants will meet at the Gerald E Eddy Discovery Center and hike to Green Lake Rustic Campground. There are fire pits, pit toilets, and a water pump. Approximately 4.8 miles of hilly terrain. During the hike, instructor Ben Wielechowski will give brief demonstrations on various water purification techniques, 'bear-baggin,' and other backpacking techniques. Students will prepare one meal during the day. After the class, students are free to reserve overnight camping through the Waterloo Recreation Area.

Tuition: $15 per person. Children 12 and older are half price with accompanying adult.
