This outdoor leadership/instructor training school prepares Christian individuals with the hard skills and soft skills necessary to lead groups in rugged, adventure & wilderness ministry settings. Training includes backpacking, rock climbing, mountaineering, map & compass navigation, risk management, group initiative games, counseling, programming, leadership, and debriefing. Other possible introductory skills may include desert, technical canyoneering, and winter travel.
The SOAR Basic is a modified version of our original SOAR training program. By decreasing the length of the training from six months to three months, we have made the training shorter, less expensive, and narrowed the focus to the key, critical outdoor skills most instructors and programs need to lead groups in serious outdoor settings, and with the goal of life changing results! We place a HIGH priority on safety and risk management. Please call or email with questions.
Prerequisites: A YWAM Discipleship Training School (DTS), and a current CPR and Wilderness First Responder (WFR) certifications are required before attending SOAR Basic.
