Outdoor Wilderness Instructor

Adventure Treks Hendersonville, North Carolina
Deadline May 15, 2019
Job Type Seasonal / temporary

Through adventures designed to foster community, build confidence and teach leadership, Adventure Treks operates 13 to 30-day wilderness-based programs for teenagers in British Columbia, Alaska, California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Wyoming and North Carolina.

You see the campers and the trees, everything that’s said and goes unspoken. You’re cheering these kids on and cheering them up. In the highs and lows of the trail, you’re there, scanning and planning the next steps. You’re in charge of safety, satisfaction, and success.

Of course, you know that. You’ve been on the trail before. That’s what we’re looking for in our next Wilderness Instructor. You know the demands of operating on the sun’s clock and sleeping in the wild for weeks at a time with peers and kids that rely on you. It’s not comfortable, but it’s so rewarding.

You’ll help kids foster community, build confidence and leadership skills on the trail. We’ll help you get on the train and stay safe. We’re Adventure Treks and we operate 13 to 30-day wilderness-based programs for teenagers in British Columbia, Alaska, California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Wyoming and North Carolina.

Applicants must be 21 years of age (college graduate or degree in progress preferred), have a valid WFR & CPR certification (or be willing to acquire one) and some experience on the trail working with youth and leading outdoor programs.

Meet the faces of last years staff!
