Outdoor Skills Workshop - Scoutcraft Lightweight Tripping Skills

This would be the Light-Weight Backpacking Tripping course that we've delivered before. The focus is on experiential, site-based learning that comes with practical tripping as opposed to more formal instruction. Backpacking courses are more flexible than canoe tripping. We'll probably head into Queen Elizabeth 2 Park where we can put more on campsites than in regulated parks.
