Leading a group on a backcountry trip requires extensive training in wilderness camping skills. The Technical Skills component is designed to teach the outdoor skills necessary to lead multi-day trips in the backcountry. Topics covered include route planning, navigation, outdoor cooking, and campsite selection and set-up. The text for the course will be The Backpacker's Field Manual, written by Outdoor Action Director Rick Curtis.
