Checking in From Adventure Treks Instructor Orientation

AT Staff19 Jun, 2013

Check out what Adventure Treks Instructor Orientation is all about…

We have a phenomenal team of instructors at Adventure Treks.  It’s been a great orientation and we are excited for you to meet the great role models who will be your instructors this summer. Our instructor team spent seven days of training together in southern Washington where we covered the big picture of all that being an outstanding Adventure Treks instructor entails.  From applying recent trends in youth development to an outdoor environment, to refreshing medical skills, to risk management, to van driving, to community development, we all learned and shared a lot.  We also renewed and formed a powerful community which will be the basis of the excellent communities we hope to form with our students on all of our trips.

On Monday, June 17,  we divided into our six person staff teams and headed to our trip destinations.  During this second week of training, our instructor teams will be focusing on mastering the hundreds of small details that take an Adventure Treks trip from being merely good to being exceptional. Our instructors will also be scouting trail heads, refreshing their back country skills on an overnight hiking trip, shopping for food, learning about their students, and planning the final details of your trip.

We are excited to see you at the airport when you arrive on your opening day.

It’s summer – get ready to have a lot of fun!

Stayed tuned for a Meet Your Instructors video… coming in next week’s blog!

Best, Dock
