The Basics

We have 3 staff trainings during the school year: September is our largest training, with smaller trainings occurring in January and March as staffing needs dictate. It's also possible, that with the right person, we have a spot open right now. So....

Reference and Contact Information

By filling out the below information, you agree to the following: "I authorize my references to provide High Trails with information requested in this form. I release my former employer and all persons whomever from liability regarding the furnishing of said information."

Nature Question

We work at residential camps located in the National Forest. This means, that while we have building with plumbing and heating, we're still surrounded by trees and rocks and animals and blue sky. What is your experience in the outdoors, and how do you see yourself fitting into this environment?

Caregiving Question

We work primarily with 5th and 6th grade students. While we are prepared for, and need to treat, major injuries, the majority of our cases are homesickness, stuffy noses, headaches, and upset stomachs. Describe how you see yourself in a caregiving role that requires a good amount of plain old TLC and attention.

Professionalism Question

What helps us to stand apart from other outdoor science schools in our area is the level of professionalism that we demand from our staff. We insist that you have an attitude and an approach to your job that is characterized by intelligence, integrity, maturity, and thoughtfulness. We are, however, a camp, where we encourage you to be goofy and silly and to have ridiculous amounts of fun. What side do you lean more towards? How will you walk this fine line, making certain to balance both professionalism and fun?

Paperwork and Computers Question

We work at a camp facility, but function as a highly structured school. With that, we utilize strong amounts of organization, paperwork, and systems to manage the thousands of students we see every year. Describe your organizational and computer skills.
