Rock Valley College is coming to Rocktown Adventures! Rocktown Adventures, Emmaus Adventures, and Rock Valley College have joined together to offer a series of outdoor adventure themed classes this spring as part of the college’s Community and Continuing Education Program. Emmaus Adventures is led by Terry Bomkamp. Terry has led numerous outdoor trips from boy scouts to adult camping trips and is an accomplished back country cook who has presented on the subject at numerous outdoor events. He also leads backpacking trips for us. His knowledge comes from the best teacher in the world, practical experience. And he loves sharing that experience with others.
Many camping related topics will be covered in an interactive presentation, and since the classes will be taking place at Rocktown Adventures, any gear you would use is right there in front of you. So you are able to see for yourself how it could work for you as you are led through a demonstration of various useful outdoor skills such as packing a kayak for camping, or how to prepare great tasting food in the middle of no where.
There will be a total of 7 classes, taking place on either Thursday nights or Saturday mornings. Here is a schedule of the classes:
Feb 1: Gourmet Back Country Cooking
Feb 3: Backpacking in the Midwest
Mar 15: Isle Royale Wilderness Adventure
Mar 17: Car Camping for Beginners
Mar 22: Leave No Trace Camping
May 17: Camping on the Wisconsin River
