This course will be in two parts, one delivered at two consecutive evenings May 28 and May 29 beginning at 7:00 PM at the boathouse at the RA Centre, and the second a camping weekend at Rock Lake in Algonquin Park 7-9 June.

The first evening session will be a discussion and demonstration of gear.  This will include personal gear such as clothes and packs and group gear such as stoves, water filters, tarps and cooking equipment

The second evening will be devoted to actually planning the trip:  tents, food and cooking, transportation, selection of boats and reserving and sign out any club gear required.

The actual trip itself will be from the Rock Lake boat launch to sites about 2-3 km away on Rock Lake.  Camp set-up, camp sanitation, cooking, knots and tarps, portaging, risk management and expedition behaviour will all be discussed.
