Backpacking Retreat


Pratt Lake to Melakwa Lake : August 23 - 25

The purpose of our Multi-day Backpacking Clinic is to create a space for women to enhance their knowledge of backpacking. This retreat is an opportunity for women to come together, exchange ideas and experience multiple days in the backcountry.

Our Multi-day Backpacking clinic is intended for women who have some experience hiking, as we will be covering between 5-10 miles a day, for multiple days. We will spend our days traveling between campsites with all of our belongings.

Guides will cover the same core topics covered in our Introduction to Backpacking course to ensure all women have the same baseline understandings of 10 essentials and LNT principles.
