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.

Since the details are specific to each kind of activity, we recommend that you contact the chairperson of a particular committee whose trips interest you: Outings, Paddling (a.k.a. Canoe & Kayak), Mountaineering, Young Members, Noble View, Appalachian Trail, M-M Trail (a.k.a. "Trails"), Conservation, etc. You can find contact information for all committee chairs (and other useful people) on the Executive Committee roster. Find an appropriate-sounding position, and call or email the person indicated. Just say you're considering becoming a leader and want to know more.

Or, feel free to contact our vice chairperson at We'll make sure you find out what you want to know.
