One of our FLT participants thought it would be beneficial for potential participants of our trainings to get more information on what to expect on the training. Here is her description.
Frontcountry Leadership Training (FLT) is more than a run-through of LAWT resources and camping skills; it immerses future camp leaders in the very experience they aim to create with youth and provides hands-on learning. Moreover, the small-group training fosters productive partnerships among youth workers. Teaching not only came from the LAWT instructors, but also from the participants themselves. I appreciated how instructors consistently invited us to contribute what we knew and did well. We swapped activity ideas, anecdotal solutions to problems, general outdoor knowledge, and even chilling fireside stories! LAWT provided a comprehensive learning experience that was fun and down-to-earth…all without making our camping trip feel stilted or overwhelming.
