Sierra Club "Wilderness Basic Course" (WBC) Pages

This comprehensive course will give you key information about:

Map reading
Compass use
Clothing selection
Food selection and cooking
Physical conditioning
Lots more!

Participants are taught skills to safely enjoy the wilderness. These skills are taught in ten lectures and are practiced in overnight outings: Car Camp, Land Navigation, Mountain and/or Desert Backpack, and Snow Camp.

Our goal is to share our knowledge and skills in the safe enjoyment of wilderness areas and to convey a sense of responsibility for maintaining the purity and integrity of the wilderness environment.

Participants must supply their own equipment which may be rented from many sporting goods stores. Information about equipment will be covered in the course lectures.
