Have you recently moved to Colorado and want to enjoy the great outdoors but have no idea where to start? Have you always wanted to try camping, but feel a little nervous about setting out the first time? Is wine around the campfire more your style than 20 miles of backpacking? This hands-on, how-to course focuses on the essentials of tent camping for those who have little or no experience. The goal is for you to gain the confidence to venture into the outdoors to experience camping while staying safe and having fun! Participants will set up and take down a tent, cook a meal on a propane stove (weather permitting), and do the clean-up and packing of a carefully designed camping kit. You don't need to travel far, as class takes place at the CFU campus in Lowry. Sheila Summers is a higher education instructor and Nancy Montgomery is an experienced event planner. Sheila and Nancy have camped together many, many times throughout their 30+ year friendship and are eager to share their knowledge with you. They've created their new business, Camping with Colleens, to make it easier for everyone to "Get Ready, Get Set, Camp!"


$10 materials fee paid in class. Class will meet in classroom, but move to outdoor area, assuming weather permits.
