We asked some of our current (and former) staff why they do the work that they do?
It’s no secret, our industry attracts some of the most talented and well-rounded individuals because of the connection that we have with our work.
We value outdoor leaders and guides who are passionate about the outdoors and educational travel, who through their work with OutBeyond, give young people the necessary tools to be able to imagine a world without limitations, so that they can live a life with unlimited possibility.
Hear what our teammates think about the work that we do:
"I have always loved getting outside and away on a camp or in an activity; for me it is a chance to shut off the everyday world and enjoy myself.
