OTL LEADER TRAINING

IS FOR THOSE WHO LAY IN WAIT FOR THE FEW STARS TO SHINE ABOVE CLAREMONT

FOR THOSE WHO YEARN FOR THE MOUNTAINS

FOR THOSE WHOSE PULSE JUMPS IN FRONT OF THE TIDES

FOR THOSE WHO DESIRE ADVENTURE

AND FOR THOSE WHO ARE WILLING TO FIND IT

 

Come join the family of explorers who find enjoyment, passion, escape, and liberation in going outdoors, expecting mishaps, and the thrill of being alive.

 

We will tentatively be leaving Claremont on Saturday October 10th for Joshua tree national park. While there, we will teach you basic hard skills, soft skills, basic first aid (not certified), and how to use otl. As a leader, you can lead trips and enjoy many perks to be disclosed only in the desert. 

 

Leader training often fills up fast. If this is the case, we will hold a lotery for who actaully gets to go. If luck is not on your side this semester, we will hold another leader training next semester in addition to advanced leader training courses. If you are not qualified for advanced leader training now and don't make it onto this leader training trip, please go on some otl trips this semester, familiarize yourself with the outdoors, and come to advanced leader training in the spring.

Questions, comments, concerns? email dej918@gmail.com (that's me, dej) Or stop by the gear room.

In addition, I understand that as a Participant in the Activity, I will engage in physical activities, during which I could sustain serious personal injuries, illness, property damage, or even death. I understand that as a Participant in the Activity I could sustain serious personal injuries, illness, property damage, or even death as a consequence of not only Pomona's actions or inactions, but also the actions, inactions, negligence or fault of others, and that there may be other risks not known to me or not reasonably foreseeable at this time. I further understand and agree that any injury, illness, property damage, disability, or death that I may sustain by any means is my sole responsibility, except for those occurrences due to Pomona's gross negligence or intentional misconduct.

RELEASE AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY: I, on behalf of myself, my personal representatives, heirs, executors, administrators, agents, and assigns, HEREBY RELEASE, WAIVE, DISCHARGE, AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE The Claremont Colleges (Pomona College, Harvey-Mudd College, Claremont McKenna College, Scripps College, Pitzer College, Claremont Graduate University, and the Keck Graduate Institute), its governing board, directors, officers, employees, agents, volunteers, and any students (hereinafter referred to as "Releasees") for any and all liability, including any and all claims, demands, causes of action (known or unknown), suits, or judgments of any and every kind (including attorneys' fees), arising from any injury, property damage or death that I may suffer as a result of my participation in the Activity, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE INJURY, DAMAGE OR DEATH IS CAUSED BY THE RELEASEES, UNLESS THE INJURY DAMAGE OR DEATH IS CAUSED BY THE RELEASEES' GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR INTENTIONAL MISCONDUCT, AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE INJURY DAMAGE OR DEATH OCCURS WHILE IN, ON, UPON, OR IN TRANSIT TO OR FROM THE PREMISES WHERE THE ACTIVITY, OR ANY ADJUNCT TO THE ACTIVITY, OCCURS OR IS BEING CONDUCTED.
