It is that time of the semester, yet again. If you have ever wanted free money then this trip is for you. Learn all the things you need to know to take people on OTL trips, whether that be a day chilling on the beach or a 4 day backpacking trip in the Sierras, come to this training and you will be qualified to do so!

The best part, is that you need no outdoor experience to become a leader! 

Once a leader you can take people outside to cool places, and OTL will help PAY FOR IT!!!! (FREE MONEY)

We're gonna go camping, somewhere beautiful, scenic, and outside, this coming Saturday night. 

We will leave Claremont no later than 11AM, end up outside, set up camp, and teach you all sorts of amazing skills and knowledge, eat delicious food, make friends, do some interpretive dancing (optional), then sleep under the star studded sky. We will return to campus early Sunday, so everyone can resume the mundane on campus life that includes homework, class, and more homework until your next OTL trip that you lead!

 The two steps to becoming an OTL leader include this trip and getting a Wilderness First Aid certification (offered on campus soon). 

Come one,

come all,

we're gonna have fun,

its gonna be a ball.
