Our administrative team consists of 20 dedicated, fun and supportive leaders spread over three locations, a Portland administrative office and base camps in Central Oregon and Northern Washington. We also employ phenomenal instructors steeped in youth development, social and emotional learning, technical outdoor skills, and expert facilitation. Our Portland office is located in the west end of downtown and hosts an inclusive, active, flexible, and results-focused culture.
We are a family and adventure friendly employer. A number of our admin staff work less than full time to balance family relationships/responsibilities or to allow for adequate time to travel, adventure or otherwise pursue personal goals.
