LPFA FUNDAMENTALS OF BACKPACKING 5 WEEK CLASS
The classes are designed for introductory backpackers of all ages but we promise, no matter what your backpacking skill level, there will be tons to learn. Our instructors are seasoned thru-hikers, local experts and gear gurus with decades of experience. The topics for the classes include: footwear, mapping/GPS, backpacks, ultralight, clothing systems, water filtration, sleeping options, shelters/tents/hammocks, cooking, electronics and we'll be heading into the wilds to learn together how to incorporate the classroom skills into your in-the-field experiences.
It'll be great fun and this is a terrific way to feel more comfortable backpacking and make friends along the way. There is a suggested $150 donation to the LPFA to cover some class expenses and anything left over goes into the LPFA Trail Care fund.
