This Isn't Your Average Job It's Way, Way Cooler

Step Into Our Office

Why was Avid4 Adventure voted one of Outside Magazine’s Best Places to Work? Because when you work here, your office is the outdoors. Atop mountains, in rivers and on trails, alongside colleagues that share your passions, your to-do list consists of teaching curious kids how to paddle, climb, hike, bike, and thrive in the outdoors. This isn’t your typical day (or overnight) job. It’s an adventure you’ll never forget. Our summer seasonal staff work from late May/early June through early August.

The Core Values We Live By

Live Fun

We believe that being outdoors creates joy. We support kids and teens, their families and our peers to adventure exuberantly out in the world.

Live Environmentally Connected

We create environmental stewards. We walk our talk by minimizing the environmental impact of our programs, teaching Leave No Trace principles and environmental consciousness.

Live Truth

First we listen. We notice other people’s uniqueness, goodness and successes and speak of them. We express gratitude. We have meaningful conversations.

Live Smart(er)

We are committed to training and development. We track and advance campers’ skills and support our staff to develop technical outdoor and business expertise.

Live Gratitude

In times of success and through times of challenge, we remain grateful.  We say “Thank you!” for things both large & small. We try to value all areas of our lives and bring a sense of gratitude to all aspects of work and play.

Live Empowered

First we ask, “What would you do?” We are confidence builders. We trust others to make good decisions, give them opportunities to lead and encourage positive risk taking.

Live Balanced

We bridge the passion we have for work with the passion we have for the outdoors, community, family and ourselves, deliberately allocating meaningful time for each.

Live Community

We create connections. We work, play and volunteer together, inspiring growth through shared adventure.
