NRRT 350 - Wilderness Leadership

  • 3 credits
  • Fort Collins

Ever wonder how to navigate through timber to a rocky point above treeline? Are you willing to spend the night out under the stars in the company of others exploring the value of wilderness experiences?

The Wilderness Leadership course may be the right choice for you. The mountains of Colorado become the classroom for this exploration of wilderness leadership. Being safe and competent in the outdoors requires more than technical skills; it involves a deeper understanding of yourself and others in an adventure context.

Topics include: backpacking, Leave No Trace camping, teamwork, and emergency management; technical skills like rock climbing, mountaineering, wilderness first aid, and expedition planning; group dynamics, mountain safety and accident awareness.


Must register for Lecture and Lab.
