I came to BOSS because:
I came to BOSS because I wanted to improve my wilderness skills. I had backpacked for many years but wanted to be truly comfortable in the wild. I hoped BOSS would give me the confidence so that I could face any challenge that arose.
I teach at BOSS because:
I came out of my first BOSS course with so much more than expected. A sense of calm, renewed energy, and a feeling of reconnecting with nature, myself, and other people. The chance to provide someone else with the same experience brings me back.
About Baret Bailey:
I work as a high school science teacher when I’m not tromping around Utah. I have a lot of hobbies and worked an entirely different job before teaching at BOSS. Come on a course and you can ask me about it.
