Join our team and spend your summer outdoors, having fun, and making a difference!

Our programs combine being in beautiful places while backpacking, canoeing, and climbing with providing young people ways to learn more about themselves and each other.

Do you want to make a difference in the world? Do you want to see places in the world that leave you speechless? Do you want to be a part of a supportive inclusive community that embraces differences as something special?  If so, you’re in the right place.

Develop your leadership style.

Every day is an opportunity to explore working with a group to navigate new places and adventures.  Our extensive training focuses on delving into group management, diversity and inclusion, and facilitation to hone your skills.  You’ll be developing tools and refining your own voice as a leader.

Work with amazing young people.

You’ll work with a group of youth from diverse backgrounds helping each one of them find their strengths, make great friends, and explore the outdoors.  For many of them this will be when they fall in love with the outdoors – learning to camp and enjoy time spent in nature for the first time.  You’ll be teaching youth how to set up a tent and how to lead your peers all in the same day!
