There's no better way to spend a weekend than out in the woods! Join us at Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area where we'll spend the night at secluded campsite. You won't believe you're only 20 miles from downtown Atlanta! Our guides will work with you to help you choose and use equipment, make sure your backpack fits perfectly, and demonstrate the best ways to maximize your comfort and fun. You'll also learn about campsite selection, camp cooking, water treatment and Leave No Trace etiquette. This course includes all required gear (backpack, tent, sleeping bag, pad, stove, all cookware, trekking poles, and water filters) and food. If you have been thinking about trying out backpacking, this is an adventure not to be missed.
