The mission of the Glendale Outdoor Leadership School
(GOLS) is to foster a learning environment dedicated
to creating opportunities to enhance personal
growth, healthy living,
and environmental stewardship within individuals,
communities, and society as a whole. The GOLS staff
are committed to providing excellent experiential
programming through outdoor education, recreation,
and leadership training. Intrinsic to this, we
support the mission of our parent organization, the
Palmetto Conservation Foundation.
provides education and skills training to help
people stay safe while enjoying the great outdoors.
Located in Glendale, SC, near the Pacolet River,
GOLS provides hands-on, experiential training for
“kids” of all ages in individual sports, including
mountain biking, indoor rock climbing, and kayak
paddling. Courses also include wilderness medicine
for first responders, wilderness first aid, outdoor
leadership and team building. Class sessions range
from short seminars to multi-day retreats. Children
enjoy adventure camps and expeditions. GOLS offers
the only SOLO Wilderness Medicine certification
courses in South Carolina. GOLS is supported, in
part, by a grant from the Mary Black Foundation.
