Join us for a one day workshop to develop and practice important skills needed to successfully lead safe and enjoyable chapter activities. Sessions will include Activity Design and Planning, Screening Participants, Leadership Styles, Decision Making, Trailhead Procedures, Managing Your Group, and Accident Scene Management. The skills presented will apply to all chapter activities, and will benefit anyone planning to lead a one day activity, a weekend trip, or maybe something more ambitious. For exercises, we will split into small interactive groups. Whether you are an experienced leader looking to make your trips run more smoothly, or are interested in becoming a leader, this workshop will boost the skills and confidence you need to lead a chapter activity. The workshop will take place in Hope Valley, RI. Cost for chapter members is $15.00, and includes refreshments and a manual.
