WYLD Expeditions at Strathcona are delivered by professional and highly skilled instructors.
They love the outdoors and they love to teach and share their passion for adventure. Our instructors are excellent role models and are chosen, not only for their high level of technical skill, but because they are smart, energetic, caring leaders who have the ability to work with and look after youths. All instructors undergo a criminal record check and hold current certification in Wilderness First Aid & CPR. Other qualifications include: BCRCA Canoe Instructor, WKABC Whitewater Instructor, ACKSG and SKGA Sea Kayak Guides, Swiftwater Rescue Technician & NLS. Instructors receive ongoing training and evaluation and are encouraged to further develop themselves professionally.
Most of our instructors work as outdoor guides and leaders year round. Many are graduates of our own leader training semester the Canadian Outdoor Leadership Training or similar programs. In addition, they have strong “soft skills” in leadership, group dynamics, motivation, skills progression and more.
They’ll keep campers safe, engaged and learning throughout their trip.
