We are excited to announce that registration for the upcoming Outings Leader Training (OLT) Weekend at Hanging Rock State Park is NOW OPEN! Space is limited and the registration deadline is Wednesday August 6th.
Training will include:
- The Sierra Club Outdoor Leadership Training OLT201 (advanced OLT, this is required training to lead an overnight outing away from cars)
- Basic First Aid (required of all Sierra Club Outings Leaders–you will receive a first aid card from ASHI good for two years at completion of the weekend)
- Camping/Backpacking Skills
- Special presentation by Recreation Specialist, Trevor Hudspeth (NOLS Wilderness EMT and NC EMT) on Wilderness Survival Skills!
Visit our Outings Calendar and on our Outings Resources | North Carolina Chapter for more information and the link for registration (via Eventbrite). There is a working document on our Outings Resource page that has additional details about the weekend.
Please note that we will not be teaching OLT101 this weekend–which is required for all Outings Leaders and must be renewed every 4 years. Outings Leaders (or Outings Leaders In-Training) that need to renew or take their OLT101 requirement should do so online prior to the training. Links and info are included in the announcements.
There will be some classroom instruction but we will be also be doing quite a bit of “on the trail” teaching/learning. It’s going to be a great time–we hope many of you will be able to make it!!!
