This course is designed to provide relatively new, experienced, and lapsed backpackers with the knowledge and practical skills to plan safe and successful overnight to multi-day backcountry trips. CorpsTHAT’s online intermediate backpacking class will cover many tips and tricks of backpacking and low-impact camping from a Deaf outdoor educator taught in ASL. Topics will include but are not limited to in-depth meal and route planning, wildlife safety tips, waste management, Leave No Trace, administering some basic first aid, basic navigation skills, and comprehensive safety and risk management.
Our intermediate backpacking class will take place once per week for four weeks, starting during the fourth week of January and ending during the third week of February from 7 pm to 8:30 pm EST. As part of our intermediate class, we are also providing a complimentary one-hour consultation service with your outdoor instructor during the four-week course.
