The emphasis is on backpacking but it is generally applicable to all types of outdoor activity. This is the next step beyond the camp-craft skills that are covered in Outdoor Leadership Skills 
(OLS).
 
You will be need to select and take a weekend backpack trip (5-7 miles, round-trip, in the local mountains) from  among  several  to  be  offered  in  March  and  April  and  led  by  the GLAAC-HAT  Staff.  Each  person  is responsible for providing his/her own clothing and equipment.  An Adventure Pass for your vehicle is required at many of these locations.
 
Completion of this training is recognized by the award of a special patch.
