Alum Backpacking 2019


Alum Backpacking

Week of 8/5/19
L-Dub alum only.
For those alum wanting a challenge and looking to develop outdoor leadership skills.

Immerse yourself in backpacking, outdoor leadership, environmental science, and in the wonder of exploring the Pacific Northwest backcountry. After spending one days at school packing and preparing, you and your group will set off on a four-day backpacking expedition. You will hike about 5 miles each day to a new campsite, occasionally hiking up to 8 miles in a day, carrying everything you need in a large backpack that weighs 30-35 pounds. While traveling over peaks and mountain passes, you will learn the essential skills of backpacking and discover what it means to be self-sufficient in the outdoors. You will learn skills such as water filtration, meal-planning, and navigation, while developing leadership skills and building deeper friendships.
