Why Take Courses in Camping and Hiking

When most people think of camping or plan a camping trip, what they are thinking or looking at is drive-up camping. This is the type of camping in which you take your car or your RV, drive to a campground, pull into a numbered site, and then set-up your rig or tents. It's a good way to cut your teeth into camping and hiking but it isn't really our preferred way of camping and hiking. What we love is when you park, put the gear on your back, and head out on the trail to find your own camping spot far and away from others.

Going hiking and camping out on the trail is something unique and beautiful. This type of camping enables you to really, really get out in nature and take in the beauty of the natural environment around you. This type of primitive camping gets you away from the noise of other campers, it gets you away from the ugly campground lights, and instead, it gives one the lights of the stars and the sounds of the wilderness. Once you sleep beneath the stars, with the woods and the wilds around you, you really won't see traditional camping the same ever again.

But while primitive camping and hiking can offer you spectacular experiences, it is challenging. Hiking out to a campsite means that you have to carry all of your things on your back and making a campsite requires a certain set of skills. To help people prepare for camping and hiking, our team offers special outdoor education courses. These outdoor education courses are designed to help you become more capable and confident in your abilities so as to best enjoy this style of camping.
