Application Due tonight, October 10 by 11:59 p.m.

The Outdoor Leadership Course (OLC) is a semester-long experiential learning course offered to 10 UF students seeking to improve their interpersonal and technical leadership skills in the unique and challenging environment of the outdoors. Students accepted to the OLC will get the opportunity to become competent, courteous, and responsible outdoor leaders by learning the technical ‘hard’ skills (knots, orienteering/navigation, water filtration, wilderness medicine, outdoor cooking/meal prep, canoeing, fire starting, backpacking, etc) and the ’soft’ skills (group games, assessing group dynamics, risk management, difficult conversations, participant communication, etc) necessary to become an outdoor leader.
