On Friday November 2, 2012 the Career services at Radford University brought the coolest outdoors camp to campus, looking for students over 20 years old with a passion for the outdoors, leadership and children to lead wilderness adventures this summer. This sounds like an amazing experience both for the leaders and the children involved in these trips, and I am considering applying to be a leader this summer.
According to this company’s website, they are the worldwide leader in student outdoor adventures, they have been conducting adventure torus in the American West for 39 years. They have now expanded their tours to Washington, Oregon, Alaska, California, Hawaii, Wyoming, Idaho, Colorado, Utah, Central and South American, Europe, Australia and the South Pacific. “Their philosophy and goals are to enable their students to become more responsible, tolerant, and self-confident as well as develop a powerful, all-inclusive community.” Along with just offering amazing experiences, they offer international destinations, bicycling adventures, and community service components.
So you may be asking where do I sign up and what does it take to be a leader? For more information about this, check out their website, http://www.wildernessventures.com. Follow them on Twitter, @wvsummers and check out their facebook page.
Has anyone does a camp like this? And who wants to sign up to be a leader with me!
