Mentor Group Practice Camp

Field trip: Backpacking Building Blocks (B3) Course

Mentor Group Practice Camp - Magnuson Park

This practice camp is for Christina and Liz's mentor group at Magnuson Park. We arrive dressed and packed as if we are going on an overnight. We will practice packing, setting up shelter, gathering and filtering/treating water and making a meal (or make tea/coffee).

  • Easy

We will meet in front of the Mountaineers Event Center at 1 pm. We will walk to Kite Hill where we will practice setting up our systems. 

Come dressed in your hiking clothes and packs filled with what you have for the day. We will set up camp, prep a meal or make coffee/tea, filter water, and get an overall sense of how long it takes you to set up/take down, and get an opportunity to test out gear before your first trip! 

We will be outdoors the entire time, so keep track of weather and dress appropriately.
