We’ve been hearing this question a lot lately… “Who are my instructors going to be this summer?!”
Without further ado, we present the 2018 instructor teams! We spend each spring creating the most skilled and balanced instructor teams 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. Each trip has both new and returning staff.
Quick facts about our instructors:
- Average age is 27
- Average Adventure Treks tenure is 3 years
- Return rate is 75 percent

On June 3, our directors and trip leaders will head to a five-day leadership retreat near Mt. Hood in Oregon. Trip leaders manage each of our staff teams and are supported by our regional directors; our leadership team has 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, our instructors will gather in southern Washington for their two-week orientation; the first week will be spent as a big group as we go over the big picture of Adventure Treks. The second week, each trip team of five or six instructors will head out for another week to scout the logistics of their specific 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.
