Leader Resources Seminars - Winter 2016

We've made lots of improvements to our website support for leaders over the past few years. Whether you’re a new or seasoned leader, we want to make your life easier by making sure you know what resources are out there for you. Staff will be on tour hosting informational seminars with exciting and useful information to make it easier for you to lead trips and courses. Join us!
