Overview

Learn to be a competent trip leader and acquire lifelong skills through this continuous 20-day backpacking experience! This trip provides excellent instruction for older teens on managing groups and conflict, traveling confidently in the outdoors, and reacting to unplanned situations. Many graduates of this program have gone on to work with the AMC. You will focus on gaining the knowledge and experience outdoor leaders need to be successful, from route, food, and equipment planning to group development and decision-making. An on-the-trail certification in Wilderness First Aid will train you to manage backcountry emergencies. You will have the opportunity to lead the group and to handle simulated emergencies. The trip finale includes planning and executing a small group expedition. For ages 15-18.
