Welcome to our Backpacking Outdoor Course SERIES!


We couldn’t fit all you need to know on Backpacking into just one 1 hour course so we now have created 4 classes that covers in detail all you need to know to get out on the trail with a pack on your back!

Many of us are drawn to the open trail, our gear on our back, and map in hand, searching for some solitude next to a campfire far beyond the city’s lights. If these things seem appealing to you, then this course would be an excellent fit for you. CorpsTHAT’s online backpacking course will cover the tips and tricks of backpacking, and low-impact camping from a Deaf outdoor educator taught in ASL. Topics will include but not limited to proper gear selection, packing your backpack, meal and route planning, basic navigation skills, safety and risk management, water treatment, administering some basic first aid, and waste management. By the end of this course you will feel prepared and well equipped for your next adventure.


Our intensive backpacking class will take place once per week for five weeks, starting the week of October 19th and ending the week of November 16th. We will have two separate sessions: Tuesdays at 7pm and Thursdays at 7 pm until 8:30 pm. During the week of November 2nd to 5th, you will be expected to do an independent project along with our perks of providing one-hour consultation services with your outdoor instructor.
