Description: Northern Explorers is a club focused on wilderness leadership development. We welcome CSS students who are interested in becoming outdoor guides/leaders. Northern Explorers works very closely with the Outdoor Pursuit department to coordinate guide training and trips/event for the CSS community. Our training focuses on canoeing skills, rock climbing skills, kayaking skills, and a variety of other backcountry skills. No skill/experience is required to join, just a positive attitude and motivation to learn. We meet at least once monthly for a formal meeting and a couple times per month for skill development. Our training progression allows each person to dictate the pace in which they would like to learn. When ready, our member co-guide and guide events for the Outdoor Pursuit department.
