About the event

Are you seeking some new adventures in your life? Join Arrow Ambassador Laura and others on this awesome outdoor weekend at a beautiful state park, and enjoy a hands-on weekend of paddling, camping and learning beginner backpacking techniques. 

Mohican State Park has beautiful, beginner-friendly trails, but there will be some elevation. Please reach out to to get tips on how to best prepare. We will leave no hiker behind, and encourage you to push yourself to get out for this awesome weekend!  Please note, due to the backpacking trails being closed at the parks (tornado damage), this adventure will teach you basic skills and will give you practice carrying a fully weighted backpack, but will not include the backpacking site (closed).  Please don't forget to bring your bag if you would like to practice!
