Event description
Two day practical course to qualify hike leaders for events sponsored by the Toronto Bruce Trail Club.

About this Event

One of the things that makes the Toronto Bruce Trail Club’s hiking program unique in this city is that our hike leaders have all completed comprehensive training and apprenticeship prior to organizing and leading their own hikes. This helps ensure best practices with respect to enjoyment and safety for all our hikers.

If you would like to join our team of volunteer hike leaders, you’ll want to sign up for this spring’s hike leader training.

The training consists of a two-day workshop that provides you with the information you require to lead hikes for the Toronto Bruce Trail Club. It is an intensive combination of practical outdoor ‘hands on’ and classroom instruction. Following completion of the course participants must assist on at least three hikes (one of each type minimum) under the supervision of a certified hike leader and plan and lead a graduation hike before receiving their certification.

When: April 4-5 (9 am to 5 pm Saturday; noon to 5 pm Sunday)

Where: The Community Room at the North York Mountain Equipment Co-op Store, 784 Sheppard Ave. E. [Exit at the Bessarion Subway Station, Sheppard line].

Cost: $60
