“This course has been such a blast! I had never been backpacking before, and I learned sooooo much! Although backpacking was intense and challenging, I was able to pull a lot from the experience, especially how to handle leadership. I learned a lot about sharing, helping out and giving it your all. The girls I have met will be life-long friends!” – Terra, 16

Description:

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.

Please contact suza@womenswilderness.org to determine if this course is appropriate for you!
