Want to pick up hiking, but afraid of getting lost in the woods?

Step One: Get your bearings with an intro to backpacking class!

Build your knowledge base under the guidance of professional guides and educators. Enjoy a laidback ambiance that encourages learning and acts as a great place to meet future backpacking buddies. Better yet, this class will help prep you for Kaf Adventures' own multi-day backpacking outing.

Covered topics include wilderness survival and planning, planing routes, preparing meals, and handling emergencies. You'll also learn about topographic maps and gear essentials as well as get acquainted with the ethical side of backpacking, including learning about the "Leave No Trace" mantra.

Step Two: Ween yourself off hot showers.

Note: Since this is a classroom course, minimal equipment is needed. It is recommended that you come prepared with 18 ft of 6mm cordelette - preferably cut into one 12' piece and one 6' piece which can be purchased on site the day of your classroom course. We will use the cordelette for knot tying practice, and you will use it again on your Mountaineering Outing! You will receive a detailed list of what is required for a Mountaineering Outing following registration, so that you can come to the classroom session prepared with equipment specific questions. Feel free to bring along any items you want checked out by our professional instructors.
