This program is a great option for older outdoor enthusiasts looking to build skills in trail guiding and learn about backpacking basics. Campers will begin the week developing leadership skills as they work with their peers through a series of interactive challenges on our team-building course. Throughout the week, they will familiarize themselves with a range of hiking and backpacking equipment and learn vital skills in hiker safety and first aid, route mapping, map and compass navigation, camping courtesies and advanced survival skills. Participants will be put to the test at the end of the week, as a group hike to a remote part of our property encounters a series of theoretical backcountry scenarios that they must use their newfound knowledge to overcome.
Registration fees (per week): $275 members / $300 non-members
