Participants will learn the general differences in backpacks and other gear, what to carry for an overnight up to a week-long trip, how to pack a backpack, tips for making loads lighter, and how to stay safe in the backcountry.

The program is being held at the shop of ITA board member and crew leader Tom Dabrowski in Sagle. The shop is located at 877 Heath Lake Road, Sagle.
