This backcountry adventure will focus on the skills needed to be a comfortable, competent, and happy hiker. We’ll spend a day in Jawbone Flats planning and preparing, then we’ll hit the trail to experience first-hand how to take care of ourselves and each other in the wilderness. Camp cooking, wilderness medicine, leadership, and communication skills are all a part of the curriculum, and, of course, swimming! Backcountry Basics is perfect for all skill levels, especially first-timers.
