Logistical staff are the smooth operators of our organization and planning is their forte. NWOBS logistical staff has had experience in organizing projects, driving 15 passenger vans/large trucks, repairing outdoor gear, and facilitation to large groups of people. This is a great entry level position where staff gain more experience in outdoor education and supporting courses.
A Day In a Life of Logis
Every day can be different when you working as a Logistical Coordinator (LC). On days of support, LCs begin their day with morning meeting at 8:30 am and typically end by 5 pm. Morning meetings are a time where the community comes together to share daily events, learnings, and cleanliness chores. Afterwards, LC’s could be facilitating gear/food pack out, prepping vehicles, repairing gear, or restocking inventory. During course functions such as course start, resupply, or course end, the LC is there assisting with the logistics and engaging with students during this process. These days can be long, involved and camping out is necessary. The LC is critical to the smooth successfulness of course.
Basecamp life is a time where you can enjoy the community and the recreation nearby. Typically there are 40 – 45 staff at each each basecamp including instructors, administrators, course directors, and logistics coordinators. Staff can enjoy the amenities provided at base including; showers, wifi, and food. Amazing recreation opportunities are located near each basecamp. The Deschutes river runs through the Odin Falls Basecamp property with bouldering along its shores, while nearby staff enjoy the close proximity to Smith Rock, Three Sisters Wilderness, and the city of Bend. Fun Rock climbing crag is 100 feet away from the Mazama Basecamp and nearby staff enjoy stellar alpine climbing at Washington Pass, adventures in the Sawtooth Wilderness, and the rural yet progressive town of Winthrop.
