Welcome to Backcountry Camping For Beginners, The Complete Online Course, where I will provide all of the information required for you to head out on a backcountry camping trip.
My name is Christina, and I will be leading you through the course. I have 19 years of experience backcountry camping. The majority of the trips I’ve gone on in the past five years have been solo trips in remote areas. I have also successfully completed many courses in kayaking, canoeing, navigation and wilderness first aid and have gained valuable information along the way. I began sharing my experiences through my blog and YouTube channel in 2015. In 2017, I began creating backcountry camping presentations to share in front of large audiences at events and trade shows, and that has all led me here.
I created this course for new backcountry campers or people who want to learn more on the subject. The course is 5 hours and there are 22 sections with over 100 lectures. The course will guide you step by step from start to finish, and includes resources and quizzes to test your knowledge along the way.
The ideal student for this course, is someone who loves the outdoors and wants to enjoy time in nature, in the backcountry, while on a camping trip. They should have some paddling experience, or are willing to learn, by taking a course, and are interested in obtaining information on how to have a great time, while being safe and respectful of nature and the environment.
Feel free to take a look at the course description and free course previews and I’ll see you there!
