Everyone is on the move! When the last planes land in Alaska, today we will have 215 students scattered between Alaska, California, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming, and Colorado. It’s been exciting to welcome our students, and the fun, adventure, and community that makes Adventure Treks special has finally begun!
After opening these first round of trips, our directors converge at our base camp in southern Washington for our second orientation, or “small O,” to welcome the trip leaders and instructors of our Alaska Expedition 2 and California Challenge 2 trips. Every instructor goes through between two and three weeks of training before they greet their students; check out our 2017 instructor orientation video below:
After small O, our directors will be visiting trips, supporting instructors, and getting to know as many students as we can. This is a fabulous group of students and after months of preparation, we are so excited the summer is finally here!
