Sierra Club Backpacking School 2022 — Payment Form
If you’ve ever wanted to backpack but didn’t know where to start … or if you’ve backpacked in the past, but are feeling rusty … or maybe you would like to be able to safely plan and lead your own trips, here’s your opportunity to learn what you need to know to be safe and comfortable in the backcountry.
This year’s backpacking school has been designed to allow students flexibility in choosing a course that fits their needs. We have broken the program into two separate courses. Choose Beginner Level 100, Intermediate Level 200, or register for both.
Beginning Backpacking Level 100: For those who have little or no experience in recent decades. By completing this course you’ll be prepared to join beginner level backpacking trips offered by the Sierra Club and other hiking groups. Fee: $150; deposit $75.
Intermediate Backpacking Level 200: For those with some recent experience or graduates of Level 100 who want a hands-on opportunity to develop their navigation skills, plan their own trips, and pick up some tips on advanced topics such as lightweight backpacking and prepping your own food. Students completing this course will plan and carry out a 2-night backpacking trip. Fee: $100; deposit $50.
Both courses will have prerequisite reading and some required “homework” between classes. Visit here for more information about these courses!
