2024 Leadership Training

Do you want to step up and lead outdoor activities or boost your leadership confidence and skills? If so, this workshop is for YOU!

The Delaware Valley Chapter will host an AMC Outdoor Leadership Training Workshop on the weekend of April 6-7, 2024 (with optional First Aid Class Friday evening, April 5). To make this event easily accessible for DV Chapter members, this session will take place at Nockamixon State Park near Quakertown.

Everyone is welcome to attend – new leaders, new members, experienced leaders, members who just want to learn what leadership is all about.

Training utilizes an experiential model where you get outdoors and participate in mock scenarios. Not only is this method a more effective approach to learning – it’s also fun!

During the training, you will have ample opportunities to network with current leaders through camaraderie and informative programs. You will instantly feel part of our DV family.

Topics covered are the elements of outdoor leadership common to all AMC outdoor activities:

  • Activity planning
  • Leading safe and enjoyable activities
  • Leadership Approaches
  • Risk Prevention
  • Liability issues
  • Accident scene management
  • Immersion in numerous role play scenarios
  • Conservation and minimum impact issues
  • AMC leadership requirements and guidelines
