About the Event
BIPOC Outdoor Gear Library and Paddle Like a Girl are excited to bring you this backcountry camping workshop where you will gain all the basic skills to start backcountry tripping.

While Dee and Karen of BIPOC Outdoor Gear Library will have you rigging up a safe and comfortable campsite in no time! Join us after the workshop for dinner around the campfire and some good conversation. This is intended as an overnight camping excursion. A private group site has been booked and you will have access to your vehicle. Stick around in the morning for a light breakfast and restorative yoga with Selam Debs.
