Intro to Backpacking
The backcountry can be a scary and complicated place, but it doesn't have to be with the right information. With Uplift Adventures, we believe in giving you the skills so that you can gain the knowledge to get outside.

With this course, you will gain experience so that you can plan your next adventure while making smart decisions.

Is this the adventure for you?
This experience is meant for people who have hiked before and want to go to the next level by overnight backpacking. You will want to be fit enough to carry a backpack that is ideally a third your weight and carry it uphill. You may have even tried backpacking before and you want to become better and make better choices in the backcountry.

Castle Day Hike

"The Intro to Backpacking Course was incredible – I was terrified to camp in the backcountry, but [the guide] taught me all of the basics and it was so fun!!! We laughed so much and I learned a ton. I felt such a sense of accomplishment after that trip and it really prepared me to continue to camp in the backcountry."
