Outdoor Skills Workshop
ATTENTION: Those interested in learning more about safe and responsible use of the Adirondack wilderness; in particular, those looking to lead groups or wishing to expand their personal knowledge and skill.
An intensive weekend of formal and informal seminars as well as hands-on activities designed to expose wilderness users to a wide variety of skills and knowledge. Most of the time is spent out of doors, rain, snow, or shine and includes a hike up Mount Jo (ascent approx. 210 meters/710 feet, 40-60 min one way).The program is designed for adult leaders of all ages and physical conditions. Our intent is for participants to learn by observation AND participation within each individual’s capabilities.
