Meet Our Trip Leaders
Parents, we want you to breathe easy when you send your teenagers to Bold Earth. Our trip leaders are professional adventurous educators, united by a firm belief that safety always comes first (fun is a very close second). In addition to years of leading trips with youth in the outdoors, our staff have, at minimum, been trained as Wilderness First Responders and in CPR; all trip leader teams will have at least one certified lifeguard. Many of our trip leaders are former Bold Earth students!
