SOS PEAK Training

Friday afternoon we met with SOS Outdoor Guides in Minturn, Colorado. SOS & Meet the Wilderness have merged, and have been doing Outdoor Education programs since 1993.  They focus on winter sports, rock climbing, backpacking, and challenge course programs for teens. We worked with 8 Field staff who are getting ready for the summer program season, and had their first day of staff training on Friday. SOS is a recipient of the Leave No Trace Connect Grant, and we were their to teach the staff how to facilitate the Teen Peak Pack. We covered three of the activities; How Prepared are You?, Principle Presentation, and the Ethics Game. The SOS staff were already very knowledgeable of Leave NO Trace, which made teaching the PEAK pack very easy and fun. 

We wanted to Thank Dan for having us, and hope the summer season is a success!
