This 5 day overnight is designed for 14-17 year-olds. Course meets from August 4 - August 8, 2014. We will begin at 8:00 a.m. at the American Mountaineering Center on August 4th. Day one will include time for equipment checks, packing and driving to our campsite in Southwest Colorado to Penitente Canyon. Our days will be spent climbing and exploring the unique landscape of the San Luis Valley and Penitente Canyon.  This year includes a full day trip to the Great Sand Dunes National Park.  Our evenings will be spent around camp where participants will play games, assist with chores, and share stories.
Course instruction will encourage teambuilding, decision-making, and leadership in a small co-ed group environment. We suggest participants come prepared to be flexible and understand the importance of working together. 


Cost includes instruction by AMGA certified single pitch instructor and trained outdoor educators, equipment use, transportation to and from sites, a field journal, and food for 4 nights and 5 days.
