Weekly Meetings: Thrusdays in Manitou 123 @ 9pm.

The Bakpacking & Outdoors Club is a club designed to gather people together that enjoy the outdoors. We organize fun, low-cost trips that get students away from campus and the grind of college life. This club also educates people on the importance of low impact camping and doing our part to help the environment so that everyone can enjoy it.
