Come spend the night in the woods with COE! COE Backpacking and Camping classes offer opportunities for single and multi day excursions in and around campus and Tompkins county. Classes have varying ranges of commitment and often focus on both general and specific skills to provide the beginner or expert with an enjoyable group camping experience with others.
