The guides were very helpful and accommodating.Jim H.

It was all excellent. I would not have changed a thing. It was as described when I signed up. The guides were so helpful, informative, answered all questions and were only encouraging in all our efforts. I give them an A+Kelly E.

I was glad to finally see how much a 23 lb pack feels when hiking. It wasn't bad at all. The guides are very knowledgeable and enjoy sharing their experiences with others. Their personal touch with everything from breakfast to best practices was awesome!Jill B.

I just completed a 3 day solo hike on the AT. When my friend decided not to go, I relied on the experience gained from your backpacking course to do it solo. I want to thank you for course!Carl R.

I loved having the park staff involved and our group breakfasts.Karen K.

Every excursion was well planned and detailed. I enjoy being pampered as well as being fit.Jennifer L.

The hands-on workshops with water filters and fire building were especially helpful to me. There was much value in having a guide with Yvonne's vast experience to talk to women about backpacking safety and other issues from a female perspective. Laurie J.

Enthusiastic knowledgeable guides make the workshop fun and educational. Amanda L.

The entire trip from start to finish exceeded my expectations. Even though we had rain during portions of the adventure, that didn't change a thing! May even made the trip a bit more challenging. Do not change a thing, all breakout sessions were great.Doug L.

Andy is a great leader; he helped us with our weaknesses and praised our strengths. He provided a nice balance of group hiking and also let us hike at our own pace. I would recommend this trip to anyone who has interest in hiking any type trail for an extended period of time. Experienced hikers would definitely benefit as well. If you have every wanted to "get out there" this is the trip to take. Charley S.

I can't wait until my next adventure with OAC. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING, especially the memories :)Lucy W.

I really, really enjoyed this program. I thought the workshops were interesting and informational. I really liked that you showed us different things like with the stoves and how to bear proof our food. I appreciated that we went slow and had breaks to ease us into backpacking. It was informative and fun. Thank you!Maggie U.
