Online Refresher Training for Chapter Activity Leaders

The Western Massachusetts and Worcester Chapter outdoor leadership instructors teamed up to provide a series of refreshers seminars for existing leaders during June and July 2020. These topics are updated with the most recent information from AMC’s Outdoor Learning Institute and the Leadership Requirements and Guidelines. While not a required component for leading during Phase 1 and 2 of the volunteer activities re-launch, overviews of how COVID-19 may apply to each topic are included, where applicable.

Volunteer-led Activities to Resume after June 22nd

Although the COVID 19 pandemic is by no means over, AMC and the Berkshire Chapter are applying careful evidence-based risk management practices to chart a path forward for volunteer-led outdoor activities to resume safely. 

On June 22 we will begin offering volunteer-led activities in small groups employing social distancing measures. Group size will be capped at ten (10) participants including leaders. Activity leaders are receiving training on new trip safety protocols and procedures.
