Adventure, Leadership, Teamwork, Success, Accomplishment
These are just a few of the terms that come to mind when you join Screamin’ Eagle Outfitters for one of their Backpacking classes!
BP202 is geared for the person who has had some outdoor experience, but has not spent many nights out on the trail and/or during the cooler times of the year. Backpacking 202 will expose you to the elements of winter backpacking skills – without getting you caught in a blizzard. This class will train you on how to pack for winter backpacking, including gear, clothing, and cooking.
We will spend time at “Base Camp” teaching, discussing, and practicing the necessary skills to not just survive on the trail, but to thrive! Then we will move to one of the most prestigious sections of the Appalachian Trail: the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We will spend three days on the trail implementing the skills and practices that were learned at Base Camp. Once we have completed the 30 mile section through some of the most beautiful terrain on the planet, we will then return to Base Camp to enjoy a time of debriefing and reflection of what was learned and experienced.
Gear lists will be provided, and if you do not have the gear it can be provided for you. You will know exactly what to show up with prior to your arrival at Base Camp. Come ready to expand your knowledge of Winter Backpacking and Leadership Skills!
Each of our backpacking classes is limited to ages 18 years and older, with an attendance range of 4 (minimum) to 8 (maximum).
