Outdoor Education Instructor SCHOOL YEAR 21/22

Big Bear City, CA 

Join a fantastic community of young and energetic educators at a residential outdoor education center as we work to open the eyes of city based kids to the wonders and beauty of nature.

Interviewing now for September 2021 & January 2022 through May 2022!

OUR PROGRAM IS UNIQUE IN CALIFORNIA! We are a small, upstart company who managed to jump into the (relatively...) big leagues of outdoor education. We believe we can make a difference, make a living, and be happy all at the same time. We walk the fine line of telling you what to do and encouraging you to take ownership in the program.

OUR CORNER OF THE COUNTRY IS PRETTY DARN COOL! We are based in Big Bear, the coolest mountain town in Southern California; no other outdoor ed center is based here. From mountains to deserts to beaches, with a little small town atmosphere close by and a lot of big city amenities within a couple of hours...pretty nice...

OUR WEBSITE TELLS IT ALL! Need more details? Want so many details you'll be overwhelmed? Head over to hightrails.com and you'll see why we believe we're the most progressive place in the country.
