This option is delivered in an outdoor setting and includes overnight camping for two of the 4 days. You will attend the first evening session and complete some classroom requirements of the course. This will take about 3-4 hours. Then at the start of Day 2, all participants will meet at our location and commute to our over night location (Transportation Available).
