I loved all the hands on activities and the experienced leaders that were there to help. It was lots of fun, and I learned so much!! Thank you!!Whitney T.

I'm now an experienced backpacker thanks to Outdoor Adventure Connection. Their workshops, presentations, backpack trips, and hikes have turned an interest in the outdoors into a passion. Andy is a natural at educating and promoting. He knows how to teach; he knows how to encourage; he knows when to challenge; he has a knack for connecting with people. He's creative, energetic, and a master at organization.Karen C.

Every detail of the hike was well planned. The information provided beforehand was very useful and Andy's guidance during the hike enabled us all to have a great experience. I enjoyed the challenge. It was an amazing experience!Bill K.

I honestly feel the retreat was perfect. The attention to detail was amazing! Each activity was perfectly planned. I will recommend this if available in the future to everyone I know and will attend myself as well.Sherry L.

Great introductory opportunity and enjoyed every aspect. Learned a lot valuable information that I will apply to future trips.Pam H.

The trip was wonderful and inspiring. My favorite part was crossing the river. I can not think of any changes needed. It was also nice to meet others interested in backpacking. It was impressive how hard the guides worked to assist us setting up camp on a rainy day and then cooking so many different foods for us to try. I will book another trip!Sally D.
