Students will learn about the benefits of different sized hammocks, potential safety concerns with various recreational locations, correct hammock setup, as well as how to identify appropriate trees or structures to hang a hammock safely
A hammock that is the right size for you and correctly hung can make the difference between a wretched night trying to sleep, waking up with a sore neck, or a relaxing night of deep sleep, waking up fully rested.
Hammocks will be available for purchase at the end of the class, or students may want to learn to construct their own hammock in the Advanced Recreational Hammocking class, which will be available starting Wednesday, June 20.
