AMC Spring Leadership Program (April 4, 11, and 19-21)

We know you love hiking and being outdoors. Now it is time for you to share your hiking enthusiasm. This class will help you develop the skills to become an effective hike leader. When you complete this class, you will be able to co-lead AMC hikes. Requirements to become a full leader will be explained during the program. This is a great opportunity to learn and meet other people who love the outdoors as much as you do. I completed the program in November and I can honestly say that it gave me great insight into being a hike leader. Plus, I gained skills to help me in everyday life. The class is held on 2 Thursdays and one weekend on the Cape. Check out the AMC’s description below.

Class limit is 24. Register now:
Please do not RSVP until you have registered in the REGI system.
There MAY be discounted parking tickets available for the Commons Garage.

    I did this training last year and it was a lot of fun. The weekend on the Cape was terrific, too! I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to learn more about hiking, even if you don't plan to lead any hikes!
