A Trip Leader plans and leads 1-6 day trips on the water (occasionally on land) to various destinations throughout the San Juan Islands. The Trip Leader is responsible for all aspects of each trip from preparing, leading, to debriefing, and reports directly to our Trip Coordinator. They participate in a 15-day staff training session prior to camp, and spend the majority of the summer preparing and leading trips off the camp property.
