Outdoor Leadership Training Courses

This year's local leader training is over, but if you or anyone you know would be good potential AMC leaders, and were unable to attend this past weekend's event, but we have established a reciprocal arrangement with the Connecticut Chapter so that DV Chapter members may attend the Connecticut Chapter’s leadership training course in the fall.

 If you’d like to get started as an AMC activity leader ASAP, this is your chance! The course this year will be offered on the weekend of November 16-18 in Litchfield, in western Connecticut. We will try to coordinate carpools for DV Chapter members traveling to Connecticut for the course (about 3 1⁄2 hours from Philadelphia).

The November course, like the DV Chapter’s spring course, covers many aspects of being a trip leader such as group dynamics, leadership styles and accident scene management, and is led by AMC volunteers and staff. DV Chapter members completing this course will be certified as trip leaders upon completion of two successful co-leads on DV Chapter trips.

The cost for the weekend is approximately $50 for members, $65 for non-members, including instruction, handouts, lodging and meals. For those leading at least two hikes for the DV Chapter within a year of the course, 50 percent of the course cost will be reimbursed.

Young members interested in becoming AMC leaders may want to take part in the Inter-Chapter Young Members (20s & 30s) Leadership Training weekend that will take place on September 21-23 at the Harriman Outdoor Center in New York (30 miles north of Manhattan).

For additional information on these courses or on other leader- ship training opportunities available through the AMC, contact Leadership Chair Lennie Steinmetz at or phone her at 610-694-8677.
