Outdoor Leadership Workshop

The Outdoor Leadership Workshop (OLW) is a semester long workshop offered every spring semester.

Participants in the OLW will learn the skills helpful in being an outdoor leader/facilitator. No experience is necessary – the OLW covers all content from technical skills (tying knots, starting a camping stove, leave no trace, etc...) to interpersonal skills (creating a welcoming and engaging atmosphere, leading reflections, reading a group, facilitating team-building experiences, etc…).

OLW participants are asked to commit their Tuesday evenings (7pm-10pm) during spring semester and attend the Skills Intensive Weekend in April.

At the end of the spring semester, OLW participants who are interested in becoming a Ramble Outdoors student facilitator may apply to be a part of the Facilitator Practical Interview.

To apply for the 2019 Outdoor Leadership Workshop, submit an 2020 Outdoor Leadership Workshop Application to bbates@luc.edu no later than 11:59pm, Thursday, November 8th, 2018.
