Intro to Hiking and Backpacking
September 3 @ 7:15 pm - 8:30 pm$10
Join us at Compass Point on Thursday, September 3rd, 2020 from 7:15- 8:30 pm for an extensive discussion of hiking and backpacking gear.
This class will be outside on the courtyard to comply with social distancing guidelines–therefore, it’s weather permitting. If it rains, we will reschedule!
Here’s what the class will consist of:
- discussion of our favorite hiking destinations right here in Kansas
- display and gear discussion for day hikes and backpacking trips
- discussion on training for increased endurance and distance
- individual backpack fittings– we will measure you to determine the appropriately sized pack for your torso and height
- several handouts for references as you build your hiking practice
You will most definitely leave with an increased knowledge of hiking and preparing for hiking season!
