Camp Timberlane
Woodruff, Wisconsin
$2,600.00 - $3,200.00 / season
Previous experience required
Start Date:
Starts in 4 months. (May 29, 2023)

We are looking for mature and responsible people who have experience in outdoor recreation to be a part of our awesome trip-leading staff!  Our Trip Leaders guide canoeing, backpacking, sea kayaking, and rock climbing trips all over the Lake Superior region and into Canada.  We take a team approach with our Trips Staff, with all trip leaders sharing a voice in training and logistics.

Benefits include a competitive salary, travel allowance, and room & board for the summer. Plus, as a Trip Leader, you will be visiting some of the most pristine and beautiful locations this country has to offer, including Isle Royale, Boundary Waters and Pictured Rocks!  Our certification requirements include Wilderness First Responder (WFR) and Life-Guard Training from the American Red Cross.

Training includes a highly subsidized, outsourced Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course which can be a great opportunity for invaluable training at a very low cost to you. In fact, if you return for a second summer, we will reimburse ALL costs for the WFR course, making the 3-year certification completely free to you.  We also provide 16 days of in-house training covering soft skills and hard skills including the Lifeguard and CPR course from the American Red Cross, which is completely reimbursed for you. So, while it is true that this position requires substantial certification, we provide or pay for that training, making it clear how important quality staff is to us.

Summer contract dates for 2023: May 30th–August 12th.
