Program Outline

Safe Hiking is an integral course for anyone wanting to spend time hiking in the outdoors as well as working in the guiding industry. The overall goals of the program are to provide the novice hiker with the knowledge necessary to keep themselves safe while hiking and to provide hikers with the knowledge to make this a sustainable activity (environmentally and socially). Students will complete an indoor component on equipment, mapping skills and safe hiking procedures then spend time out in the forest learning the art of safe hiking and putting into practice their indoor lessons. An advanced course is also offered as a full day program.
