​Back Country Backpacking in the Sierra

Have you ever wanted to take an extended trip to the Sierra, but weren't sure what to bring or where to go? This class will teach you what to bring, how to prepare and the best places to visit for your interests. This course is all about fun and will be capped off by a 3-day weekend in the Sierra to let you apply what you learned. Although designed for the inexperienced, those with moderate experience have commented that the course was valuable and fun.

Note: Youth ages 10-17 are welcome to take the class, as long as they are accompanied by an adult.
