What's Included

This is a perfect follow-up to Beginner Backpacking and Advanced Wilderness Skills, providing an opportunity to practice your skills while challenging you to two-nights and three days in the backcountry. On Monday you will learn how and what to pack (gear, food, first aid and other survival equipment). You will learn how use a map and compass, how to signal for help and other important survival skills including finding and purifying water. We’ll talk about the 5 W’s of preparation as well as the importance of attitude in a survival situation. Tuesday morning we will head out on our adventure for two nights in the Sangre de Christo Mountains and we will return Thursday afternoon. Should you choose this adventure, be prepared for an exciting, fun and challenging learning experience in the backcountry!
