Seattle Program Center

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.

Attending this workshop is step one to becoming a new hike/backpack leader. About a week before this session you will receive advance reading materials via email and web links to prepare you for our workshop discussions and provide essential background material about leading Mountaineer hikes and backpacks. The leader's guide and the process steps to becoming a hike leader can be found at: :New Hike Leade... More
