Overview

Outdoor Educators work hard to ensure our programs are meaningful, supportive, educational and fun while providing superior service levels that exceed client expectations. Our Fall 2022 Temporary Outdoor Educators will co-facilitate adventure based outdoor education programs for two distinct programs; one a 5-day backpacking program (8/27-9/2) and one a 5-day front-country program (9/18-9/23); both in Yosemite National Park. New hires will be co-facilitating with one of our more experienced staff members. Dates include training/prep day(s) as well (3-total). We prefer those applicants who are able to work both programs, but will also consider those who might only be available for one. This is a great opportunity for those applicants considering future employment with Lasting Adventures.
