High Adventure Training

Our training courses are designed to help prepare the new Trek Leader for taking scouts into the wilderness and provide updated information for the veteran Trek Leader. Basic Backpacking classroom training is followed with a day hike to provide field experience with map and compass and a weekend overnight hike to let you experience what you've been told about. This training is offered twice a year, the first weekend of March and the last weekend of September. Winter Backpack training is put on in January. If you have questions about the training contact Jeffrey Bozanic at 714-747-2727 or Barbara Gibson at 714-213-4865. The following schedules are typical for the classroom trainings. As you can see we cover a wide range of topics and we include guest experts on several topics.
