Participant Information

Have you wanted to go camping overnight in the backcountry or go backpacking in the backcountry but don't quite have the knowledge to do it or may have some questions that you want answered? I have a presentation for you! A presentation dedicated to enjoying an overnight camping trip and understanding what you need. By the end of the session, participants will understand:

  • The 10 Essentials

  • Appropriate Footwear

  • Clothing and layering systems

  • Cooking systems 

  • Sleeping systems 

  • Know how to pack a backpack

  • Site selection and set up


We will be meeting at Canada West Mountain School in North Vancouver at 6:00pm. Please bring a face mask, hand sanitizer and whatever you need to learn (if you want to use your phone to take notes that is perfectly fine).
