SOOP leaders are Stanford undergraduate or graduate students who are certified in the following areas:
teaching backpacking skills, through a SOOP-sponsored workshop
working with youth, through a SOOP-created training, and
first aid, through a Red Cross First Aid and CPR certification, a Wilderness First Aid certification, or a Wilderness First Responder certification.
We have application rounds for leaders at the beginning of each season, though welcome anyone who's psyched to teach kids about the outdoors year-round. If you think you'd make a good SOOP leader, please use the Contact page to get in touch with us.
