Can I apply for any staff position?

Are long-term Trackers Earth students guaranteed a position?

This is an employment program with high expectations, not a for-tuition program. Hiring is based on applications, interviews, and maintained professionalism.

Is this a good position for School Teachers and Parents?

Our flexible training schedule going into summer accommodates a teacher’s school year schedule. Free camp for up to two children (Grade K-5) during summer provides essential care and connects the entire family to Trackers.

Training opportunities depend on the position. All staff roles include training in core educational principles, safety, and skills. The immersive teaching culture of Trackers consistently provides growth in many subjects.

What is your Covid-19 policy?

Completed COVID-19 Vaccination or exception with verification and Central Background Registry with your State are required. The safety of our kids, staff, and extended Trackers family is our top priority. Since the onset of Covid-19, we have continuously operated programming. We continue to review guidance from the CDC, State and Local health authorities, and recommendations from the American Camp Association to deliver the safest and most rewarding experiences possible. Our programs are designed to be flexible and we will update you as guidelines or policies change. See our full policy here.

About Trackers

Since 2004, kids and extended families in all their forms have journeyed on adventures with Trackers Earth and our Guides. We share the Arts of Tracking through stewardship and enduring outdoor skills.

We commit to developing opportunity by respecting the diverse cultures and values of every Guide, youth, and family serving with us.

We endeavor to grow with families for the increased accessibility of these experiences.

We define ourselves by an ever deeper kinship to the more than human world, multi-generational character, and the principles discovered and found in the quietest moments with the forest.
