Our Philosophy


It’s not what we do but how we do it that makes a difference.  Through careful instruction and positive encouragement from our experienced leaders and activity instructors, participants are motivated to face challenges that require both teamwork and individual effort.  Our philosophy is “Challenge By Choice”: participants are encouraged, not forced, to attempt all activities.  Guiding with this philosophy in mind allows campers to try new challenges in a supportive and caring environment where they will be respected for their own thoughts and feelings.  In doing so, they are given the opportunity to try their hardest while not feeling terrible or dreadful if they need to back off or self-doubt becomes too much…an attempt at trying is greater than overall performance. 

Our Staff

As a business designed to create unique and successful experiences for a variety of ages, we believe that our staff members are the backbone of our organizational strength.  We believe that a strong, honest, positive, and enthusiastic personality is the bulk of what it takes to work in the field of Outdoor Adventure and Education at Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing.

Our Guiding Principles

We’re not just looking for folks skilled in specific areas of outdoor adventure. We’re looking for people who embody our 4 Guiding Principles:

  • Work Ethic

  • Positive Attitude

  • Respect

  • Communication

Of course, a love for the outdoors is an absolute must but if you aren’t able to take responsibility for your mistakes and work together as a team, this isn’t the place for you. We are looking for staff members who are ok working with others…who are ok getting dirty, working hard, and celebrating their accomplishments as a team…carrying their own weight.


We’re looking for staff members who want to push themselves to become better leaders, better learners, and increase their confidence when making judgment calls in difficult situations. We are looking for staff members who seek adventure on their days off…who want to learn from others and experience the same feelings as their participants often do when they are out of their comfort zones. We are looking for staff members who will always find the silver linings in tough situations.
