Schools and Clinics

The Spokane Mountaineers conduct a number of diverse schools which prepare the student for various outdoor skills and activities. Schools range from evening seminars to long, comprehensive schools like the Mountain School and the Backpacking School. These schools are generally designed for the beginning student to learn new outdoor skills although we also conduct advanced training for students to go beyond the basics. These schools are a great place to learn new skills, have fun, and meet new friends. Instructors and leaders of the schools are all volunteers and most have been through the schools themselves. Take advantage of these opportunities, stretch yourself, learn some new skills and meet some people who may well become friends for a lifetime.
