COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers course.

This 2.5 hour evening course provides experienced hikers or backpackers information they need to become an effective hike or backpack leader. This course is a pre-requisite (along with a mentor hike/backpack and committee approval) to becoming an official hike or backpack leader for the club. A major part of the session is built around discussion about common leadership decision-making challenges from real-life leader experiences.  Past and current hike or backpack leaders as well as those interested in becoming a new leader are invited to participate. The workshop is free and open to all Mountaineers members, but please register online so we can schedule the right number of instructors.
