About Our Instructors

Our staff don't just teach these skills, they live them. Although our staff are drawn from all types of experiences and backgrounds, what they all have in common is a shared passion for teaching old-school skills in the outdoors. Learn more about our program staff.

Attending with your child?

Mature youth who are able to operate at an adult level and are age 16+ may attend adult courses alone. For students under age 16 who would like to participate, we require that a responsible adult register and attend the course in addition to the youth participant. Both the child and the adult must register for the course. Children who are merely accompanying their parents but are not participating in the course content (for example, very young children) may be able to attend without registration depending on topic and with Trackers advance approval. Please note that Trackers adult courses are taught at an adult level and pace and may include other participants discussing adult topics or using adult language. Finally, adults bringing children to Trackers courses are expected to provide primary supervision of their children. Questions? Contact us.
