Join us this Fall for our Women’s Backpacking Clinic!

Intended for those who are new to backpacking, this clinic is designed to teach you a variety of skills and techniques that you can take with you on your own future adventures. We believe that our women’s clinics create a welcoming environment where you can boost your self-confidence! Our trip leaders are all certified wilderness first responders, and experienced outdoor enthusiasts. Pack Rat can provide participants with most of the gear you will need at no extra cost.
