  • Easy
  • Mileage: 1.0 mi

Meet in front of the Mountaineers Seattle Program Center with your fully-packed backpack promptly at 1pm.  The session will last approximately 3 hours, though it could go longer.  This event will take place rain or shine.

Priority for this   "Practice Camp" field trip is for the Summit Sistah's B3 mentor group.  We will backpack approximately half a mile from the Program Center to Magnuson park where we will practice setting up camp, treating water, preparing a backpack meal and then packing up and walking back.   If you don't have your own gear yet or are still missing a few key pieces, that's perfectly OK.  

Students from other mentor groups are welcome if space allows.
