Backpacking Courses . . . Putting the Adventure back into your Life!

Paratus Xpeditions, operated by the adventure division of Saddle Rock Cartridge Co., is a non-profit backpacking ministry located in the Pacific Northwest.  We maintain a 46-acre base camp facility strategically located at the base of the central Cascade Mountains; a recreational destination year around.  Student customers of Paratus Xpeditions have many options for experiencing God's creation within the local area. Our focus is on preparing individuals through outdoor education to discover, understand, and defend their Christian worldview.     

 

The Paratus Backpacking courses range from entry level day hikes to advanced multi-day adventures.  These are basic instructional courses designed to impart essential outdoor skills to you as the customer.
