Avid4 Adventure Opens Summer Employment Applications

By Lorena Roberts on April 13, 2018

As we all start looking for summer employment opportunities, it’s important to remember that where you start working is just as important as all the other stuff (how much money you’ll be making, how many hours you’ll be working, etc.). If you haven’t thought about what kind of work you’d enjoy during the summer, you should definitely consider becoming a camp counselor. But not just any camp counselor, a counselor at Avid4 Adventure.

With camps that focus on sharpening skills in climbing, mountain biking, kayaking, and backpacking, you’ll love working as a camp counselor at Avid4 Adventure so much that you won’t even notice you’re at work! There are plenty of benefits to being a camp counselor during the summer, like getting to impact the lives of young children for the better. But according to a recent press release, working for Avid4 Adventure comes with many additional perks, specifically:

- deals on outdoor gear

- access to high quality gear during non-camp times

- reimbursement for transportation to and from work

- allowance towards races in any of the core sports (biking, paddling, or climbing)

- non-profit donations to charities where you volunteer

- professional development opportunities

Any training that you’ll need in order to do the job will be paid. Additionally, you can use your training hours as time to perfect your personal skills in the areas of biking, paddling, or backpacking! Training in leadership, team building, and risk management are also included in the pre-camp enrichment.

Living by eight core values is really what sets Avid4 Adventure apart from other kinds of active summer camps. These core values include living fun, environmentally conscious, truthfully, smart, graciously, empowered, balanced, and communal.

Avid4 Adventure’s work environment truly simulates a family. Not only would you love the opportunity to do something enjoyable for work, but you’ll become a part of something that’s much larger than just yourself.

Outside Magazine listed Avid4 Adventure as #3 on their list of Top 100 Best Places to Work for the year of 2017. To view employment opportunities, go here.
