Help others connect deeply with God and one another in your area.
Do you know the power of escaping distractions and reconnecting with God in His creation?
Want to help others in your area experience the same thing?
We understand many people feel intimidated by the thought of backpacking for a week or longer. Thus the Pocket Wilderness Weekend was born – a mini escape into God’s creation to refresh, renew, and connect deeply with God and one another.
This training is for people who would like to lead these basecamp, mini retreats in their own area. We will teach you how to facilitate discussions, build authentic community, and teach basic camping skills to those who may have never done it before. You will also learn how to build a program from logistics, sign-ups, meal planning, and much more.
By doing the training you will have the opportunity to become a part of the SROM Affiliate Program which seeks to connect Pocket Wilderness Guides to resources and guidance from SROM and other Pocket Wilderness Guides around the world.
**This course has two parts: Remote Learning and in person field experience. The remote trainings are once per month starting in January and the field training occurs in the spring.

Questions About Covid-19
What if SROM has to cancel the course?
You will receive a full refund if we need to cancel the course.
Should I get travel insurance?
Yes, we highly recommend getting travel insurance and checking to see if it covers Covid-19 or not.
Not only is travel insurance helpful for a potential change in plans or a course closure, some travel insurance plans will also cover if you needed to be evacuated from a course for a medical emergency.
