Notes

The school is taught by volunteer instructors experienced in the Colorado Mountains and elsewhere, who have honed their skills and perfected their gear, who love to be outdoors and enjoy sharing their knowledge and experience.


Attendance & Graduation Policies:
The Denver Group Backpacking School is open to all CMC members 18 and older regardless of hiking classification and youth 15-17 years of age accompanied by a parent or guardian. Participation in the school's outings may provide the student with hiker evaluations that can be used towards a "B" or "C" classification change. The "B" and "C" (and "D") hiker classifications have additional requirements so please contact the office (office@cmc.org) for the required form and additional information.


The objective of the school is to graduate students with demonstrated proficiency in backpacking skills along with the knowledge and confidence to safely hike and backpack in Colorado's mountains and elsewhere. Graduation from the school will be based on the following:

  • Evaluations by the student’s group instructors
  • The student’s attendance in classes and outings. (Students are expected to attend all classes and outings. Formal make-up classes and outings are not planned.)
