CIWC FREE Backpacking Seminar

April 4, 2020  9:30 am - 1:00 pm

Holliday Park, 6363 Spring Mill Rd, Indianapolis

The Central Indiana Wilderness Club will present a FREE backpacking class, which is open to the public, on Saturday, April 4th from 9:30 AM until 1:00 PM.  The location is the Holliday Park Nature Center (6363 Spring Mill Rd., Indianapolis, IN).

Topics will include selecting pieces of gear (hiking boots, sleeping bags, tents, packs, clothing and accessories), learning about "minimalist" backpacking, how to "pack" a backpack, trail safety, water treatment, stoves and cooking, first aid, staying comfortable, and backcountry ethics such as "leave no trace".

Ever wanted to try backpacking but didn't know how to get started or where to go?  This class is perfect for both novice and experienced backpackers, and a good place for anyone to pick up and share new ideas.

The Central Indiana Wilderness Club has been offering affordable backpacking trips (as well as other adventures) since 1982.  For over 20 years the club has presented its annual backpacking class.  Come to this class and get on board to take backpacking trips as close as southern Indiana, or as far away as you can imagine.  The presenters are seasoned adventurers with experience in places such as the Appalachian Trail, The Grand Canyon, the Canadian Wilderness and more.

Don't miss this FREE class! Contact Nanette or Will Eshelman (ciwcinfo@gmail.com) with questions.

The Central Wilderness Club is a not-for-profit volunteer-run club founded for the purpose of providing reasonably priced backpacking, hiking, canoeing/rafting, biking, cross-country skiing d and other wilderness adventures for members.  Membership is open to anyone with a real interest in the outdoors.
