Instructors are responsible for leading and educating a group of 12 – 15 students throughout their program, including facilitating large group activities, leading meals and working evening programs.  All lessons are written according to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and we train our staff using University of California at Berkeley’s BEETLES (Better Environmental Education, Teaching, Learning & Expertise Sharing) teaching techniques and pedagogy.
