Our team has carefully curated a weekend full of activities to choose from. This is a great opportunity to try new activities, enjoy ones you already love, and create a weekend you will remember forever.

  1. Please choose only one 4-hour class per day (rock climbing, mountain biking, paddling, long hike) and fill the rest of your schedule with the shorter 2-hour classes / workshops.
  2. Please do not sign up for the same class/workshop more than once to ensure all participants have the chance to try different activities. Yoga is an exception to this rule - you can sign up for this more than once.. 
  3. If you are interested in a class that is full please sign up for the waitlist. We do have the ability to increase capacity in some classes if there is enough interest.
  4. Please note: You cannot double book time slots. If you select a community event like a meal or happy hour that overlaps with a class you will not be able to sign up for the class. You DO NOT need to add the community events to your schedule as everyone is welcome. so prioritize adding the classes / workshops to your schedule first.
Following these guidelines will help ensure that you don’t overdo it and that everyone will get to have a weekend full of different experiences.

Limited Capacity filling up

The best thing you can carry into the backcountry isn’t what’s in your backpack; it’s what’s in your noggin. Outdoor adventures are more enjoyable when you arrive feeling confident and prepared, so we’ll cover what to plan for—and how to handle the unexpected. Worried about getting injured? Not sure you have the right equipment for a backpacking trip? Curious about proper hygiene protocols? Wonder how to handle rough weather or animal encounters? Not sure if you feel safe rolling solo? Your instructor has seen it all, from hailstorms on the Colorado Trail to bear encounters on the Pacific Crest Trail—and she survived to share her tips and tricks. This is a hands-on workshop—prepare to have fun!
