About Family Intro to Backpacking

Calling all mothers! Have you always wanted to take your child or children on a camping trip? Have you taken camping trips before with your family but are looking to try and see what backpacking is all about? We have the perfect trip for you. Join us for an overnight adventure in beautiful Shades State Park. We will hike along the backpacking trail a moderate 2.5 miles, to the backcountry area, set up camp, learn how to filter water, cook in the backcountry, hang food, learn the principles of Leave No Trace and so much more! After the weekend you will feel confident to take your children out on your own and be successful in the wilderness. Our professional DNK Presents’ certified guides Candice Baggett and Katy Williams are so excited to lead this first family oriented trip with you.
