Have You ever wanted to learn how to camp or go on your first overnight backpacking trip in the desert? If you answered yes, then come on out to Cave Creek for a learning lunch with Ranger Derik.


Bring a lunch and get ready to learn all about backpacking! Ranger Derik will have a PowerPoint on the basics of backpacking and camping covering topics of gear, clothing, trip planning, picking a route, best food for trips, training, tips and tricks. After the presentation a full gear list of a single overnight trip will be laid out on tables and the ranger will be available for any questions you have. If you have a pack and you would like your gear to be checked out, feel free to bring it along. MEETING LOCATION: Nature Center Limit 25 participants.
