Prepare for Your Trip

This will be a wilderness trip and we practice low-impact camping. It would be of great help if you pack light! The below listed required minimal gear is really all you need to have a wonderful wilderness experience with us.


A waterproof stuff sack will be provided for your clothing that will be received and packed the night before departure. It is 12" x 25", and all of the above clothing gear will fit into the sack and should weigh no more than 18 pounds. Your camera, medications, mosquito repellent, sunscreen, sunglasses, compass, water bottle, and rain gear will be in your readily accessible day pack.


The day of departure will dictate as to what type of clothing we will start out in. Remember, we supply all of your camping gear, but some people prefer to bring their own, so please let us know what gear


If you are planning to bring, sleeping bags, tents, and pads let us know so we may be prepared.
