They are expected to create a positive atmosphere while establishing opportunities for experiential learning and authentic growth for students and clients.

Our clients include public and private schools, colleges and universities, scout groups, and specialty retreats. Instructors will also be responsible for the logistics before, during, and after a groups stay. This includes preparing program areas and facilities, facilitating meals and transitions, developing programming, and cleaning and general maintenance. As the groups arrive with chaperones, our Instructors are not responsible for campers once they are in cabins for the evening, with the exception of offsite trips and some specialty programs.
