Summer ADventures Wilderness Explorations

Pre-Trip Questionnaire

Exploring the backcountry takes a willingness to stretch our edges. The backcountry is our strong and wild earth. It is our home. One of the goals of our backpacking trips is to take the time and effort necessary to understand how to live comfortably and skillfully in this wild home.

Important! All Wilderness Exploration backpack trip participants must complete this questionnaire before registration is complete.

Note: your spot will be held, but registration is not confirmed until we receive this completed questionnaire.
