Besides “I can’t wait for this summer!”, we know another thought on students’ minds right now is, “Who will my instructors be this summer?”
Without further ado, we present this year’s staff teams! We spend several months each spring creating the most skilled and balanced instructor groups possible, and we can’t wait to watch our staff (both new and returning!) create a safe, fun, and growth-filled summer experience for all of our students.
- Average age is 26.8
- Average Adventure Treks tenure is 3.8 seasons
- Return rate is 60 percent

On June 3, our directors and trip leaders will head to a special leadership retreat near Mt. Hood in Oregon. Trip leaders manage each of our staff teams and are supported by our regional directors; they have an important role in facilitating the success of our trips, so we use this period to get everybody on the same page and go over many of the intricate details of the summer ahead. On June 9, all instructors will gather in Washington for their two-week group and trip-specific orientation, and after will be off to scout the logistics of their itineraries, bond as a community, and prepare for their students to arrive!
Please note that these are tentative staff teams, as we anticipate a few changes will happen between now and the start of your student’s trip. As always, feel free to call us at 828-698-0399 or email with any questions.
