Dates: August 2nd – August 11th, 2017

The theme of this course, “Lead for Life,” is all about forging your path into the future.
This 10-day course steps it up a notch and is designed for girls who have previously attended a Women’s Wilderness program, or have previous experience with backpacking.
We will rock climb and backpack, building upon previous skills with a particular focus on what it means to lead others in a wilderness setting. Topics may include: stages of group development, assessing and managing risk in the backcountry, teaching styles and approaches, and more.
We will also explore how to apply these skills at home or in school, and what leadership looks like through high school, college, and beyond.
