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


There’s a reason Avid4 Adventure was voted one of Outside Magazine’s Best Places to Work. When you work at Avid4 Adventure, 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.

Settling into a canoe rather than an office chair, gathering around a campfire instead of the watercooler—this isn’t your typical day (or overnight) job. It’s an adventure you’ll never forget. Read what our staff have to say in our staff culture book and check out our available positions

  • "I never went to camp as a kid so I'll admit I was a bit intimidated to start . . . I learned so much about myself and I can honestly say I am well on my way to being the person I have always wanted to be."
