Love to camp, but hate packing the truckload of things you need to create a comfortable set-up: tent, beer, sleeping bag, beer, marshmallows and, oh yeah, beer? Then venture to the Nampa Recreation Center today.
From 6-8 p.m., backpacking wizards will teach you how to downsize the amount of stuff you need to sleep in the great outdoors, so you can ditch the truck and haul everything you need to set up camp on your back. Fast and Light Backpacking will provide you with tips and tricks to downsize the size of your pack so you can feel a little less like Atlas when you go on a backpacking adventure. You'll learn about an array of food solutions and multi-use items, turning you and your pack into something like a Swiss army knife.
The cost for the class is $10 for Nampa Rec Center members, and $15 for nonmembers. To register, visit the Nampa Parks and Recreation website.
