Student leaders make this program what it is! They are:

  • Committed individuals who are at the heart of each and every trip.
  • Current and past Fort Lewis College students from all majors and disciplines.
  • Selected for their judgment and experience in the outdoors, as well as their personality and ability to work with groups.
  • Trained through a demanding outdoor leadership course that focuses on group dynamics, teaching techniques, decision making, risk management, backcountry travel, and Leave No Trace principles.
  • Certified in wilderness medicine.
