AMC Boston HB 2019 Spring Hiking Program


AMC Boston HB 2019 Spring Hiking Program

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Tue April 2, 2019 - Tue April 30, 2019

Tuesdays: April 2, 9, 16, 23, 30. Ever wanted to try hiking or backpacking and didn't know where to get started? Are you rusty and want to brush up on your knowledge and skills? Do you want to get involved with our organized hikes and meet other hikers? Then the 3-Season Spring Hiking Program (SHP) is for you! This interactive course consists of 5 instructional sessions to introduce the basics of spring, summer and fall day hiking and backpacking in New England. The instruction topics for each of the 5 evenings are different and include: clothing, footwear, heat management, nutrition, essential gear, backcountry stewardship and more! During the program participants are also given a choice of day hikes, lodge based trips and backpacks that are exclusive to the program to practice their new skills. These trips are an opportunity for participants to get outside with experienced AMC leaders and practice what they have learned in the classroom sessions. Though many of these trips have a particular mountain as an objective, the emphasis is on learning and reinforcement of the classroom discussions. Additional charges apply to some trips. [Unfortunately we cannot accommodate dogs, except service dogs, on any program trip.] Advanced registration for the program is required. Reserve your spot now as the class fills quickly. The SHP takes place on 5 nights from 6:30-9:00pm at the First Baptist Church of Medford, 29 Oakland Street, Medford, MA. The dates are Tuesdays April 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th. Class sessions are located close to I-93 and municipal parking in Medford, as well as the 94, 95, 96, 101, 134 and 326 (express) MBTA bus lines. If you have general questions about our SHP program, please contact the program organizer, Casey Ajalat. With questions about registration, please contact SHP registrar, Chris McCarron.
