Level 3 is the fourth and final step in the GSHPA backpacking progression. In addition to the two trip leaders, there will be one adult spot available for an adult who is interested in gaining the skills necessary to lead GSHPA backpacking events. Sleeping pads & backpacks are available to borrow on a first-come, first-served basis. Girls will be expected to share the responsibility of carrying group gear.
