Q. Who is WTS for?

A. Everyone 18-70+, novice hikers to experienced hikers seeking more map and compass, survival, and snow travel education. All are welcome. Students are divided into groups of 10-13 people, based on preferred field day, with consideration for hiking level and age.

Q. Can I miss a class or field day?

A. To graduate from the Wilderness Trekking School, students must attend all lectures, post-lecture group meetings, and participate in all required field days.

You may receive credit for up to two missed evening lectures by reviewing the lecture video, either on DVD, available for check out from the CMC office, or via streaming video through YouTube. Check with your instructor about making up small-group instruction materials.

You may get credit for up to two missed field days by attending a different group’s field day (if space is available) or a make-up field day. Make-up field days will be held during the current session (subject to instructor availability). Up to two missed field days may also be taken during the next two WTS sessions without charge. If you miss more than two field days without making them up in the current session, you will need to retake the course. Note – Students will have much more fun and more learning continuity if they are able to do all field days with their assigned group.

Please review the schedule carefully before enrolling to ensure you can fully participate.
