Skills covered include: camping safety, day-hiking, tent and stove-set up, clothing requirements, nutrition and team building activities. All learning is experiential.
Prior to your training you will attend a pre-trip meeting and Gear Orientation where you will learn about our specific policies and procedures for checking out and returning gear. Please note that Gear Orientations and pre-trip meetings are offered in both our Oakland and Milpitas offices.
