- Do they need to provide their own backpacks? No, we will provide them. If a camper has his/her own equipment, however, they are certainly allowed to use it.
- How much will all the equipment they need to purchase for the trip cost approximately? The main costs are for clothes, a strong fitted pair of hiking boots, and 2 water bottles. Most campers will already have these. If you need help finding good boots, we can recommend places and brands. Remember to wear them EARLY and break them in!!
Please see your specific trip’s Gear List for specific things to bring, as well as what is not necessary. We realize that wilderness gear is insanely expensive sometimes.
