New MOP Opportunities

Upcoming MOP opportunities including Wilderness First Responder, Feb Break Dog Sledding, and Spring Break Rock Climbing

Feb Break SOLO Wilderness First Responder (WFR)
Created to provide outdoor leaders and guides with the skills and knowledge to deal with crises in remote settings, this 80-hour course is the benchmark standard in the outdoor industry. The curriculum covers all the material of WFA, and goes far beyond, emphasizing long-term care, improvisation with the resources at hand, and varying environmental conditions. The course is delivered through a combination of lectures, hands on practical assessments, and actual field work. Students who successfully complete the SOLO Wilderness First Responder course will receive a SOLO Wilderness First Responder card and an American Heart Association Adult Heartsaver CPR card (or equivalent).

Feb Break Dog Sledding Expedition in Western Maine
Join MOP for a canine-powered backcountry journey in Western Maine. There is no better way to explore this winter wonderland than by dog sled! Participants will learn the skills necessary to mush, ski, and camp in the mountains of New England in winter. No experience required.

Spring Break Rock Climbing in Red Rocks
The towering sandstone canyons of Nevada’s Red Rocks National Conservation Area are among the world’s finest climbing destinations. Climbers of all ability levels are welcome to join MOP as we explore this amazing vertical landscape. Routes of all lengths and grades abound, and a dose of desert sun is always welcome after a long Vermont winter!
