As our oldest age group, Mountain Rangers have the whole mountain to explore, and spend full days hiking various trails, including up to Dog Mountain and even First Pump Peak. They also learn more advanced outdoor skills such as shelter building, knot tying, first aid and navigation through mountainous terrain. Above all, Mountain Rangers learn to develop outdoor leadership skills that will enable them to become confident and responsible mountain users of the future.
