The emphasis is on backpacking but it is generally applicable to all types of outdoor activity.


This is the next step beyond the camp-craft skills that are covered in Outdoor Leadership Skills (OLS). You will be need to select and take a weekend backpack trip (5-7 miles, round-trip, in the local mountains) from among several to be offered in March and April and led by the GLAAC-HAT Staff.

Each person is responsible for providing his/her own clothing and equipment. An Adventure Pass for your vehicle is required at many of these locations. Completion of this training is recognized by the award of a special patch.

Hike Aid 3, “Full Dimension High Adventure Training”, has a complete discussion of the training programs of the GLAAC-HAT. It may be downloaded from the Council High Adventure website at https://glaac-hat.org/HikeAids.html
