This intensive, five day course is the heart of Bay Area Wilderness Training's programs. It is designed to give you the tools you need to take youth on multi-day backpacking adventures. Completion of the course allows you free access to our equipment loan system. The training consists of a mandatory pre-trip meeting in San Francisco on June 16 and five days of backpacking in the Sierra Nevada Mountains June 25-29. You will learn about proper clothing, basic wilderness first aid, nutrition, equipment use, map & compass reading, leadership styles, group dynamics and more. Role plays are utilized to allow for a realistic back-country leadership experience. Participants will learn by doing! Food and transportation are provided. (No experience necessary)
