Part-Time Backcountry Trip Leader
TVRC Trip Leaders (TLs) set the tone and spirit for safe and rewarding backpacking, and day hiking excursions into the remote backcountry of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem of western Wyoming. TLs are Teachers and leaders, uniquely positioned to share their knowledge and passion for the wilderness with campers and fellow staff alike. They are risk managers, responsible for hazard evaluation and decision-making in potentially high-risk, high-stress situations. TLs are role models and facilitators, keenly aware of group dynamics and continuously exemplifying the values of our community…safety, respect and friendship.
In addition to their role in the backcountry, TLs are also active members of the camp community when on the Ranch. They participate in various activities and traditions of camp, and support the experience and growth of the campers both on the Ranch, and on the trail.
