Colorado has over 3 million acres of roadless wilderness. These unspoiled places are only accessible to the hardy few with the knowledge and skill to be self-reliant. If you've ever dreamed about seeing wild places but weren't sure where to start or even where to go your adventure begins here. We'll give you the knowledge and skills to explore the wilderness.
In Colorado Springs we offer a unique approach to teaching backpacking that will leave the student empowered to continue exploring on their own. Each class consists of five sessions, three Saturdays, a Saturday\Sunday overnight and a Friday\Saturday\Sunday wilderness adventure.
