Wanting to learn how to lead an OTL trip? Excited about learning hard skills (including backcountry cooking, basic first aid, tent set up, and stove management) ?! Ready to meet some amazing new friends and future trip co-leaders? 

 If you answered "yes" to any of those questions - this trip is for you!

 This training is REQUIRED for anyone who wants to lead an OTL trip (including beach trips, longer backpacking trips and everything in between!) 

During this overnight training, we will lead short workshops, talk about "soft skills" (leadership traps, outdoor privilge, and group dynamics), and have lots of fun!

Come prepared with ideas, stoke and be ready to learn and have a great time! 

 LOGISTICS:

Please bring all the items in the required gear section! There are many items you can borrow from the OEC, and if you need additonal gear- stop by and chat with an OEC staff member, or reach out to us at otlstaff@gmail.com, or on facebook!

NO previous backpacking or camping experience is required!

We will meet at 2pm on FRIDAY AFTERNOON BEHIND THE OEC. If you have a friday afternoon class or lab, send us an email and we'll figure it out!

We will do a short classroom session (website! budgeting! forms!) and then head out!

 All food will be provided, but if you want additional snakcs please bring them!

 Lastly, if you have any questions, concerns, or any other thoughts, please reach out to us!!

We know sign ups can be kind of crazy, so priority will go to:

1. People leading spring break trips

2. People with cars

3. First year students 

4. Everyone else!

Closer to the trip, we'll send out emails with more information.

 Much love, OTL Staff
