New Hike-Backpack Leader Seminar - virtual

This 2.5 hour evening seminar provides experienced hikers or backpackers information to help them become an effective hike or backpack leader for the Mountaineers. This seminar is a pre-requisite (along with a mentor hike/backpack and committee approval) to becoming an official hike or backpack leader for the club, and prospective leaders from any branch can get credit for this seminar toward their leader certification.
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 event.

Interested in becoming a hike or backpack leader for The Mountaineers?  This seminar is one of the pre-requisites to be certified as a leader, and it also can provide a helpful perspective on the role if you aren't sure yet if you want to do it.  This seminar will meet the requirement regardless of the branch you'd like to lead for.  If you'd like to attend, please register here  at least a couple of days in advance, as some advance preparation is required.  Please register only if you definitely plan to attend, as we plan the number of volunteers we need based on the roster.  We hope you will join us!

PLEASE NOTE that this is NOT a general information session about hiking and backpacking programs with The Mountaineers - this is specific training for people who want to lead Mountaineers hikes or backpacks.
