A Word About COVID: The pandemic will still be with us by mid-May but we anticipate and hope that it will settle down by then to the point where we can offer an in-person course in relative safety. We will still be taking precautions. (Masks, sanitizing hands, physical distancing as much as possible, etc.) Those who may be at higher risk of severe disease because of age and/or medical conditions, those who do not need it for high adventure this summer, and those who have not had the infection or are less than 1-2 weeks after being fully vaccinated might want to consider sitting this one out. It will be an individual or parenteral decision. Anyone who is ill or has not completed a quarantine period from COVID at the time of the course must not come. Refunds will be made in that case. The plan is to offer another course in the Fall and two next Spring.
