"Advanced Backpacking" course objective is to practice what you learned in the "Basic Backpacking" course. You will develop backcountry 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 youth 14+ years old, or 13+ with completion of 8th grade, & 1st class or above. Scouts must be accompanied by a specified adult leader at a ratio of 1 adult for every 3 youth. 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. 

Dinner on Saturday and breakfast on Saturday will be provided. Participants need to supply their own snacks and lunch.
