Organizing Your

Flat Fabric Camping Workshop


The Flat Fabric Camping Workshop can be as short as four hours or as long as a full day. It is also possible to participate in a flat fabric camping Multi-day Backcountry Adventure. As a backcountry adventure, the workshop becomes more experiential as we hike with blanket packs and sleep in poncho shelters.

Hosting and organizing a workshop is easy.  If you are interested in a workshop for your group or organization, please visit our Hosting a Workshop page.

Since each workshop is individually designed for your organization or group, the rate for the workshop is based on various factors, which we discuss in the design process.
