Advanced Backpacking

The course objective is to practice what you learned in the BASIC BACKPACKING AWARENESS course. Develop back-country competency and proficiency among Scout Leaders and older Scouts for leading treks. The emphasis is on developing an awareness of backpacking and wilderness skills so that wilderness travel can be conducted in a safe and environmentally responsible manner. The training is designed for all registered Scouters (Adult Leaders) and Senior Scouts (13 years and older). The clinic is an overnight practical exercise in the field. The objective is for the student to become aware of the broad range of challenges and responsibilities facing trek leaders in BSA and to feel comfortable in fulfilling a leadership role.
