Trip Leaders Corner

In order to be a Trip Leader for the BOC, students must participate in a Trip Leader Training. This three-part training consists of Wilderness First Aid, classroom training consisting of Risk Management, Equity Inclusion and Access, Group Management, Leadership, Policies and Procedures as well as time in the field learning and practicing campcraft and backcountry skills. The training is offered once a semester for 10 students. Information about how to apply for this training will be sent out to everyone in the BOC Bates Engage Group (click here to join!) and advertised widely on campus.
