Summer is quickly approaching, which means students and parents are asking about who will be running their trips. Drum roll, please… We are excited to announce our tentative 2016 instructor team assignments! We have put a lot of time and energy into creating the most skilled and balanced instructor teams possible, and we’re looking forward to watching our staff teams facilitate safe, fun, and growth-filled experiences for every one of our students. We may make changes as we go forward to ensure the best instructor teams possible. Please click here and choose your trip to see your 20126 instructors.
On June 3, our directors and trip leaders will meet in the Mt. Hood area of Oregon for a four-day leadership retreat. The trip leaders are the managers of our instructor teams, and they have a large role in the success of each student this summer. After our retreat, all instructors will meet for big group orientation; there we set the tone for the summer and go over our risk management policies and procedures (and have some fun, too!). After big group orientation, instructor teams will head to their trips to scout, bond as an instructor team, and prepare for the trip.
And as we prepare for our leadership retreat and orientation, we know that you’re also preparing for the summer. Purchasing gear and packing can sometimes be overwhelming, so we prepared a brief video guide. The video addresses some of the most common questions we get about packing for a summer trip at Adventure Treks. If you have any questions about packing, or your adventure (or anything else for that matter) please give us a call and we are happy to help in any way we can.
