The Trips Staff position at Skylake is primarily focused on taking our campers on out-of-camp trips. Trips staff lead campers to Yosemite National Park for day trips and also backpacking in the Ansel Adams Wilderness and inside Yosemite as permits allow.
Trips staff must possess Wilderness First Aid or Wilderness First Responder in addition to Lifeguarding and CPR. Skylake will reimburse you for your WFA or WFR course. Once on-site you will also take your Leave No Trace and Food Handler certifications. Trips staff must be at least 21 years of age before the position starts. Counselor positions available for those under 21 but at least 19.
This position is perfect for those with outdoor experience on the trail, in the wilderness, for those who love to hike and enjoy leadership roles with children (ages 7-15). The position entails driving responsibility so a clean driving record is required. When not assigned to leading a trip, Trip counselors are "on-call" in camp and assigned to running errands or helping out where needed in camp or at our Health Hut.
