About the event
It's a women's adventure weekend! Have you ever wanted to learn backpacking skills in a class that has you learning while actually giving it a go? This 2.5 day course is focused on learning backpacking basics through mini-sessions and getting on the trail to learn in real time. Just to take the fun up a notch, we've also decided to add a little extra adventure to the weekend!
The shenanigans will start on Friday when we meet at the Mohican State Park Group Camp to set up our tents and introduce ourselves. We'll head over to the Mohican Adventures and kick off our weekend with a 7-mile paddling adventure. After some fun on the water, we'll make our way back to the campground for dinner, have our first Backpacking info session (see topics below) and self-reflection before getting some shut-eye.
Saturday we'll start our day off right, prepping our bodies with a sunrise yoga practice before settingout for our hike to the campsite. Expect a moderate 5-6 mile hike, with a lunch stop and break. We'll set up at the site, and get into our second backpacking info sesh and self-reflection number two.
Sunday we'll get up early to have breakfast and have another stretch before heading out on our final trail adventure.
