“In the past I have led weekend backpacking trips for high school students during the summer. I did this through a summer camp that I worked for in NC. That said, I would really like to get back into such a thing but do not know how to go about doing it. I do not just want to go on a backpacking trip but to help lead one, preferably through an organized program. I know there has to be groups out there seeking female counselors. Any readers out there know if this exists in DC?”

Wow, that sounds like a great program. Sadly, I don’t have any info about a similar program in DC but the readers have an incredible wealth of knowledge about these topics. Is anyone familiar with an existing program like this? If not, any suggestion for how one could start one up?
