After developing a love of outdoor adventure through previous Adventure Treks trips, many of our students decide to continue and strengthen their bonds to the outdoors. On Leadership Summit, our capstone program located in the wild and beautiful Pacific Northwest, you’ll begin the evolution from student to instructor, laying the foundation for planning and leading your own outdoor adventure trips. Learn and improve outdoor leadership, group facilitation, wilderness ethics, environmental education, and team-building initiatives, and earn a wilderness first aid certification. The itinerary is flexible, allowing students to practice their leadership skills as much as possible. Leadership Summit can act as a substitute for counselor-in-training programs, as many of our students go on to be summer camp counselors.
New students may apply for Leadership Summit 2020 after January 1, 2020.
