At Adventure Treks, you are an integral part of our community and will make lasting impressions on your students and lifelong friends with your fellow instructors. In our 29 years of providing unforgettable adventures and empowering youth, Adventure Treks has earned a reputation as one of the most professional organizations in the outdoor adventure field, and that is due to our dedicated instructors. A commitment of providing fun, growth-oriented, and community-minded experiences for students allowed Adventure Treks to safely and successfully operate their 2020 and 2021 summer season, create a new gap semester program, provide fulfilling jobs, and avoid large staff layoffs. Our 60% instructor retention rate is in part due to our competitive salary, benefits, and opportunities to work our summer, fall, and Spring Leadership Adventure Semesters.
Course size is generally 20–24 students with 5–6 instructors. The outdoor skills that instructors teach include backpacking, rock climbing, mountaineering, mountain biking, canoeing, cooking, orienteering, Leave No Trace concepts, and general environmental education. Other specialized skills like whitewater rafting and kayaking will be taught in conjunction with outfitters.
On each program, the instructor team works closely together to coordinate all aspects of the trip, including instruction in all outdoor activities, risk management, driving 15-passenger vans and towing U-Haul trailers, managing group dynamics, planning menus, purchasing food, laundry, coordinating with outfitters, turning in blog and photo updates, maintaining equipment, and handling medical issues. Instructors receive additional ongoing support from the director team.
