On May 17 and 18 we held our second annual Trails Volunteer Leadership Training at AMC Camp Dodge. We had 7 of our 8 leaders from 2007 return, as well as 2 new leaders for the 2008 season.
We spent the first day covering AMC and Camp Dodge policies, the emergency action plan, radio use, and leadership scenarios. We had a packed day of classroom time and field time. The second day was really for our new leaders to get to opportunity to practice leadership scenarios on the trail.
In all we have a great group of Trails Volunteer Leader this season to help lead our weekend and weeklong programs. Please welcome:
Bill Brodnitzki (Little Bill)
Bill Patrick (Big Bill)
James David Christmas
Keep an eye out for their Red Helmets, the easiest way to identify one of our AMC Trails Volunteer Leaders. We hope that you get a chance to work with some of these great leaders this season in the Whites, Baxter, or Acadia.
