Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC) has been providing life-changing outdoor learning experiences for individuals of all abilities, with a focus on those with disabilities and special needs, since 1976. As one of the oldest four-season adaptive outdoor educational organizations in North America, BOEC provides a sense of freedom and accomplishment to those who are routinely excluded from these activities. Whether skiing or snowboarding in the Adaptive Ski and Snowboard Program, paddling the West’s great rivers, or mastering the high ropes course as part of BOEC’s Wilderness Program, BOEC inspires people of all abilities to discover new places, learn new skills, and rekindle their spirit in the heart of the Rocky Mountains.
Most of our summer field positions are filled by former interns who have completed a full season of training and coursework. Therefore, very few field positions are available, but you are welcome to submit a resume, particularly if you have experience both in outdoor adventure activities and working with disabilities and special needs. Send to [email protected].
Similarly, many of our winter ski instructor positions are staffed by former interns, but again, if you have PSIA adaptive certification and/or experience in teaching skiing or snowboarding to adults and children with disabilities and special needs, please submit a resume and cover letter. Send to [email protected].
The BOEC welcomes many people to work programs as volunteer instructors, especially in the winter. See the Volunteers page for more info.
The BOEC features seasonal internship openings throughout the year, offering room, board and a small stipend, and extensive trainings and work experience for those wishing to learn the trade. See the Internship page for more information.
