Staff members at High Trails live and work on the 6000-acre property of the Colorado Outdoor Education Center here in Florissant, CO. Outdoor Education Instructors are involved in a wide variety of work, from teaching about local geology to orchestrating the setup and cleanup of meals. Staff members spend a majority of time outside, and lead programs and classes starting before breakfast and ending after post-dinner evening activities. Because of this, we encourage hardworking applicants with college degrees and positive references from former employers, teachers and associates.
High Trails hires instructors for the spring and fall seasons. Fall runs late August - mid November, and spring runs late March to mid - May.
Hiring has closed for our spring season. We will resume hiring for our fall 2018 season in April.
