This evening workshop provides experienced hikers or backpackers information on how to become a hike or backpack leader. The workshop is a pre-requisite to becoming an official hike or backpack leader for the Mountaineers (secondary steps are a mentor hike or backpack and committee approval). Past and current hike leaders as well as those interested in becoming a new leader are invited to participate. Hiking trip standards, recommended resources, some outdoor leadership insights, and the mentor leader program are presented in an informal Q&A format. We will also review how to create a hike activity and complete activity reports on the club website. The workshop is free and open to all Mountaineers members, but please signup online so we can anticipate group size.
