True to their name, these are orientations to the BAWT gear libraries in Oakland or Milpitas. We want you to see the gear, learn to navigate our reservations systems, and learn about our gear use policies.
The Gear Orientation is an evening classroom session designed to give you access to our gear libraries. The Gear Orientation also supplements the weekend Frontcountry Leadership Training and Camping at the Presidio Leadership Training. It’s a fun evening that will supply you with useful information about our gear!
It is compulsory that FLT grads complete the GO! in order to borrow gear. Currently, the GO! is part of the pre-trip meeting for all FLT courses. The GO! also gives CAPLT grads wider access to use the gear from our gear libraries for trips outside of the Presidio.
All Gear Orientations are from 5 – 7 pm unless otherwise noted
