We designed COLT’s curriculum to create employable outdoor leaders. Every year we offer some successful COLT graduates a spot in Strathcona Park Lodge’s Practicum, an on the job training program for outdoor educators.
During this unpaid work experience, you will shadow Strathcona instructors as they teach school-aged children everything from rock climbing to overnight camping skills. At first, you will mostly observe, but as the weeks go by you will gradually take on more of a leadership role. It’s excellent, real world, job experience and a great way to join the staff at Strathcona, one of Canada’s busiest outdoor education centres. You will meet many college program graduates working at Strathcona. Plus COLT graduates work all over the outdoor industry.
