Wilderness Prep/Mountain Leadership is an experiential outdoor leadership training program that trains participants to lead high quality, safety-focused excursions with minimal impact on the backcountry. The course focuses on the needs of those outdoor leaders who primarily lead day hikes. Students participate in the AMC’s Mountain Leadership School (MLS), a program that has been offered for over 50 years to train leaders in outdoor adventure. As part of the course, students have the opportunity to complete a Wilderness First Aid course. There are laboratory fees for both the Wilderness First Aid course and the MLS course. (This class is held during the summer months at the AMC Highland Facility. Students must commit to attend one-week day-long sessions).
