We’ll provide you with the gear you need to set out on a new Adventure and even teach you “How to Pack your Pack”. Before the retreat you’ll attend a wilderness skills class taught by our trained and experienced guides, which will prepare you to pack your gear properly and know what to expect. You’ll be able to take the gear home so you can practice packing and be ready the day we set out on the trail.
It can be difficult to know what kind of food to bring into the back country if you’ve never done it before. That’s where our experience comes in handy. We’ll prepare and provide just the right amount of food so you don’t carry too much while still meeting the high calories need of backpacking. Each woman will receive her food pack at the trail head and carry it in her pack.
You’ll learn various skills while on the trail and at camp. Some of the skills our Guides teach are: basic navigation, wilderness first aid basics, proper water filtration, building an emergency shelter, how to signal for help, various methods for starting a fire, and more. Build your skill set and your confidence as you learn these essential skills for backpacking.
Are you worried you might not be physically prepared for one of our Backcountry Retreats? With your purchase, you’ll receive our unique fitness program designed specifically for backpacking and other outdoor adventures. Created by nationally certified trainers and coaches, you’ll have a training plan which includes walking/hiking distances with a backpack, body movement exercises, and gentle yoga routines to prepare your mind and body.
