TEENS listen up! We have a unique opportunity for you to receive backpacking/hiking training from one of the best instructors in town – Meegana Henry, an Appalachian Trail thru-hiker!

Meegana will be teaching the basics of backpacking, parts of a backpack, how to pack your pack, top ten essentials with examples of each and campsite set-up. Demo Gear will be provided.

You are welcome to bring your own gear if you have any questions about it, time permitting.
