    The first 25 Soul Trak guests receive free entry and rentals, and anyone after that will pay an entry fee of $25 but will receive free rentals.

    Washington, DC 20019

    Join us at our quarterly service day at the Farm and Food Hub in Kelly Farms in DC.  We will be planting, weeding, harvesting vegetables, and amending the soil.  We will have service supplies but if volunteers have additional gloves, a mask, water and any personal supplies that would be fantastic.  We strongly recommend wearing appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather and for a few hours outdoors, pants, and closed-toed shoes or boots.  No sandals or flip-flops.  We work with heavy tools and don't want anyone get injured.

    We will meet up for brief introductions at the beginning of our session to acknowledge all the volunteers and get a debrief of the day's work program and at the end take time for group reflections.

    We are really looking forward to working with you. See you all at the Farm!

    The Single Pitch Instructor (SPI) Program teaches climbing instructors to proficiently facilitate and instruct the sport of rock climbing in a single pitch setting. The SPI is the only internationally recognized single pitch climbing instructor certification program in the United States. It was developed to fit in the AMGA Rock program.

    • The program is for current, active rock climbers who have a real desire to teach rock climbing to novices in a single pitch setting.
    • The SPI Course is a 27-hour training course that normally runs as three consecutive nine-hour days or day classes with evening sessions.
    • The SPI Assessment is a minimum of 16 hours run over a two-day period.
    • Certification lasts for three years as long as the candidate keeps current AMGA Membership and First Aid Certification.
    • After three years current SPI’s can re-take the SPI Assessment to regain the SPI certification.
    • Taking any higher level AMGA Course also re=certifies the SPI certification for another three years.


    • You are a Professional Member of the AMGA.
    • You have at least 12 months prior climbing experience.
    • You are an active climber with traditional lead climbing experience (leader placing pro).

In this course, you'll learn the Patient Assessment System, how to provide effective first aid treatments for injuries and illnesses common in the outdoors, how to manage environmental emergencies, and how to make appropriate evacuation decisions.

    You will spend half of your time practicing skills and participating in realistic scenarios. NOLS Wilderness Medicine's WFA course is approved by organizations such as the American Camp Association, the United States Coast Guard, as well as other state and federal agencies. This certification is a huge asset, as many outdoor employers require a WFA/WFR certs to lead and instruct outdoors.

    Successful course completion will earn you the following NOLS Wilderness Medicine certifications:

    • Wilderness First Aid

    • CPR 

    • Epinephrine Auto-injector

    Scenarios and practice sessions will take place both inside and outside. Please bring outdoor clothing appropriate for lying on the potentially wet, snowy, or cold ground while playing the role of both rescuer and patient. Stage (moulage) blood and make-up are used to enhance the realism of a scenario. The classroom environment generally lends itself to a pair of indoor comfy shoes.
