This retreat is located in the beautiful Panthertown Valley in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  We will hike a loop trail that offers breathtaking mountain vistas as well as gorgeous waterfalls.  Throughout our days of hiking we will engage in various mindfulness practices to get us connected to the natural world.  Attendees will learn backpacking and camp skills, such as cooking for a group on the campfire, setting up tarps, and learning useful knots.  We will augment our diet while in the forest with wild edibles, carefully learning the intricacies of wild plant ID.

Breakfast and Dinner is covered in the retreat cost.  You provide your own snack and lunch foods.  Alive and Wild will provide all collective camp gear: Cooking equipment, group tarp, tools, rope, etc.  You provide personal camping gear such as a backpack, tent or tarp, sleeping pad, and sleeping bag.  A gear list and arrival and departure details will be provided upon registration.

Plan to arrive Friday at 9 AM and return Sunday around 5 PM.
