Our instructors are not camp counselors – they are highly trained outdoor professionals.  All instructors are Wilderness First Responders (WFR).  This isn’t just outdoor first aid; acquiring your WFR takes 70 hours.  This certification is recognized by medical professionals worldwide.  Additionally, all of our staff are required to have Federal and State background checks.

All courses are staffed with a Lead Instructor and Assistant Instructor.  Becoming a Lead Instructor requires many seasons of trip leading and demonstrating consistent, excellent decision making skills, exceptional judgment and numerous extensive trainings.
