The following are testimonials from students who have taken the Backpacking School.

The Backpacking School helped me feel more confident going into the backcountry and choosing the path less taken.

I met some terrific people who I hope will remain hiking and backpacking partners.

The class exceeded my expectations. I valued the comradeship, instruction and participation.

Fine, outstanding program. What really worked was the hands on map and compass. It proved that you could actually follow a route up a mountain.

The hands-on backpacking first aid scenarios were very helpful.

I’ve always enjoyed the outdoors. Completing the backpacking school has raised the bar on my comfort level, allowing me to enjoy the outdoors even more while being safe.

I found a hiking partner as excited as I was to take on the 485 miles of the Colorado Trail.  See you in Durango!
