The countdown has begun, and we are eager for your arrival! New gear is arriving in our office on a daily basis: new hats and shirts, backpacks and sleeping bags, 100 new Big Agnes tents, a new trailer for the Blue Ridge trips, and much, much more.
We can’t wait to see our many returning students (our return rate exceeded 60% again this year) and we are very excited to get to know our many, many new students. You’ll receive more information about your trip (and about your tripmates) as your arrival day gets closer. Find out where our 2011 students are coming from – see our map!
We have almost completed staff hiring and are delighted to once again have an 80% instructor return rate. We are excited about the superbly qualified new instructors who will be joining our outstanding team of veterans. This is an inspirational group of mentors, role models and friends. Many instructors will have been with Adventure Treks for over 5 years and several were former students themselves. We’ll announce all of the 2011 instructors in a future blog!
Please let us know how we can help you get ready for what promises to be an incredible summer together. See you soon!
