Appalachian Mountain Club's five-day Mountain Leadership School curriculum includes:

The MLS for Backpack Leaders program begins with an initial interactive front-country trip preparation day followed by a group dinner and accommodation the first evening at the AMC Highland Center. The following morning commences a four-day backpacking adventure in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The backpacking format offers a wilderness setting to learn about and practice personal and group leadership as well as backcountry camping in a remote environment. Students should arrive to the backpacking program equipped with the items in the recommended gear list they will be provided. The curriculum will focus on the interpersonal and technical skills needed to lead a group in the backcountry. Scholarships for active chapter leaders are available!
