Grew up in 4-H or spent some time WWOOFing? We are looking for staff with experience farming or gardening. If you’ve ever had a job where you’ve bike commuted, Go West Camps might be perfect fit for you. We use pedal powered transportation, and basic riding and bike maintenance skills are a real plus. Adventure programs are an important part of Go West Camps and require some of our staff members to have a greater level of certification and education.

We are looking for people with education and certification through nationally and internationally recognized organizations such as Red Cross, the American Canoe Association, National Outdoor Leadership School, League of American Bicyclists, USA Archery and others. An interest in teaching, leading, and working with youth is key for all of our staff members.

Go West operates on a small group philosophy and staff will typically work with a group of 12 campers and one other staff member. The ages of our campers range from 5 to 15.

When it’s time to get energized or wind down at camp, music can be key. We’re always looking for staff who are excited to sing or play an instrument. We hope to use photos and video to document our campers’ experience at camp. If you’re a photographer or GoPro wiz, we need your skills.

ROCK CLIMBING STAFF – Rock Climbing Staff are responsible for leading our rock climbing programs working in partnership with our climbing guides. We’re lucky to have the opportunity to climb at some of Colorado’s best climbing destinations (Garden of the Gods, Red Rock Canyon, North Cheyenne Canyon). This position will focus on the entire climbing experience, not only technical aspects but helping to guide campers to learn something new, conquer a fear, or push past limiting beliefs. Previous guiding experience or certification is preferred.
