Become A Trip Leader

We do have some requirements trip leaders must fulfill (PDF), in order to make sure that leaders are qualified and prepared for possible problems. These requirements are pretty flexible and reasonable, however. We'll do a lot to help you meet them and get any training you might need or want.
