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 activity.
  • For Beginners (Getting Started Series)

We meet at 8:00 at the Tacoma Program Center and end the meeting at 4:00.  All activities are indoors and involve group interaction oriented to leading field activities and trips.

This one-day leadership seminar is for both current and prospective leaders of Mountaineers trips and activities.  We will spend the day problem solving with scenarios based on actual trips - the good, the bad, and the ugly... The discussion is always thought provoking with the mix of everyone's own experiences, the scenarios, and the outstanding text.  This event is not activity specific - kayakers, hikers, climbers, sailors, scramblers, dancers, bikers are all encouraged to attend.  The text required for this course is "Outdoor Leadership" by John Graham.  We do expect you get and read the book prior to the class.  The book can be purchased through The Mountaineers at the link below.  We provide breakfast, lunch and refreshments throughout the day.  Participants completing the day's activities will receive the "Leadership" badge.  Registration for the day and a continental breakfast starts at 8 a.m.  The seminar begins promptly at 8:30 a.m.
