Participants are asked to arrive (dressed warmly with raingear) promptly at 9:15AM on Saturday March 28 2015 at the gymnasium at Eastgate Elementary School, located at 4255 153rd Avenue Southeast, Bellevue, WA 98006.  Instruction will begin at 9:30 and end at 3:30.

During this 6-hour hands-on class, students will visit several indoor and outdoor stations where experienced backpack leaders will demonstrate various categories of gear - shelters and sleep systems, clothing, footwear, backpacks, packing a pack - and the different food options for backpacking.  You will have the opportunity to get a close look, compare and understand your options, ask a lot of questions, and get information about prices and where to go to rent or buy some of the options.
