Outdoor Council of Canada Hiking Field Leader Certification


The Columbia Basin Trust Basin Youth Network program is offering FREE online Outdoor Council of Canada Hiking Field Leader certification training for residents of Valemount. 

Date: Wednesday, April 29 from 9:00 – noon, and Thursday, April 30 from 9:00 – noon. (both online classes are required).


It will be followed up in the future with the on-site field training once it is safe to do so.


If you are interested in leading hiking groups (hopefully as a volunteer through our local V-Crew Youth Network) in the future, and would like to receive this training, please contact either Kim Hood at vcrew@valemountlearningcentre.org or Riette Kenkel at manager@valemountlearningcentre.org or you can message us through Facebook.


This training provides a comprehensive introduction focused on the roles and responsibilities of the outdoor leader, and will teach you what successful outdoor leaders do to create meaningful experiences when leading small groups in the wilderness.
