NC Women’s Backpacking Weekend

Dates: April 5-7th, 2019
Age Group: Adult Women (18+)
Home Base/Meeting Location: Durham, NC
Experience Level: No prior backpacking experience is needed! The only requirement is that you can walk on uneven terrain and carry a pack of approximately 30lbs. Please contact Emma with any concerns. Allergies and dietary restrictions can be accommodated with prior notice.
Trip Description: The trip will gather in Durham, NC on Friday, April 5th at 1:00PM to pack and drive to the trailhead. We will hike and camp in the backcountry, embracing the beauty of early spring, on Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday morning. We will return to Durham at 3:00PM on Sunday, April 7th. This trip is ideal for women who are curious to try backpacking or who enjoy backpacking but want to do so with a group rather than alone. Our reflection theme for the weekend will be about finding opportunities for self-care even during the busiest weeks of our lives. As always, all essential gear is available for borrowing, and scholarships are available upon request.
Cost: $200 (including $40 deposit due at registration). Scholarships are available.
