Essential Camping Skills Class

March 9, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm CST

$59 – $75

Camping is the foundation of most of our outdoor activities. No matter what sport you pursue, it all comes back to a pack, stove, tent and warm sleeping bag. Join the REI Outdoor School instructors to learn how to make a comfortable home for yourself in the wild. We’ll leave the trailhead for a day hike with all of our gear until we find that little patch of ground we can call home. Then we’ll set up a model campsite using proper Leave No Trace skills. Our instructors will show you where to position your kitchen area, your “bathroom facilities” and your tent site for maximum safety and comfort. Food storage and wildlife safety will also be covered. Our goal is to teach practical camping skills for use in every situation, from car camping to long-distance backpacking.

Set up a model campsite including kitchen, bathroom and sleeping areas using proper Leave-No-Trace skills. How to store food safely to prevent wildlife encounters. Practical camping skills for use in every situation from car camping to long distance backpacking.

Notes: This class is at McKinney Falls State Park, where there is a $6 entry fee. You will receive a pre-course email from our Austin Outdoor School Staff 2-3 days before your class with more information about what to expect from the class, what to bring, where to meet, etc…
