Base Camp is seeking qualified candidates to join our team of part-time program Guides to lead groups of youth and/or adults on a variety of experiences that inspire active learning. These activities include team building exercises, rock climbing, outdoor skills (such as fire building, survival, orienteering, shelters), high ropes, leadership development, archery, and STEM-based programs like robotics. With training and the help of Base Camp leadership, the Guides provide each group with a valuable and unique Base Camp experience. This is an excellent opportunity to gain experience leading groups of youth and adults. Training will be provided.

Staff are scheduled each week for the following 10 to 16 days in advance based on their own availability making this role a very flexible opportunity that can work well with other scheduled involvements staff may have.
