Staff 

Life is the journey you make it. Similar to life, our course is different depending on who leads it. Each of our certified guides makes every journey unique to their personality and to what they personally feel will best challenge your group. No two experiences at the course are the same and neither are our facilitators. Here they are! (drumroll, please)

Cameron Ross
Managing Director and Zip Line Boy

As the founder of our course, what Cameron says goes.  Luckily he’s a nice guy.  He is a scuba-diving, motorcycle-riding, raft-guiding small engine tinkerer and can often be found zipping across the property on his quad.  He is an entrepreneurial and relational leader who loves seeing people experience new levels of growth and breakthrough. 

Anna Parr
Facilitator

When this New York native isn’t sporting a harness and helmet, she is a health coach, inn keeper and musician.  She loves to dance, sing old Hebrew choruses and have people over for organic hot cocoa.  You won’t meet a cooler girl.

Gio Figueroa Facilitator Giovani brought his many tongues to The Course team.  Generates quite the picture doesn't it.  However, 11 languages are just the beginning of this Mexican/Italian/American's many talents. As a facilitator, Gio can often be found playing on a variety of musical instruments, sometimes all at once, and preening his beard while his team traverse the elements. He claims these activities sooth his team and helps them to concentrate.

Shawna Schlenker Facilitator Shawna is from the Northern State of Washington. Although most people know it as the rainy state, Shawna brings culture instead of soggy shoes, as her Oregonian contribution to our team.  She grew up in the dessert, on a small reservation. Shawna is the facilitator who loves being silly and talking in accents.  Ask about her accent names and you'll see a whole different side of her than the sweet Origonian you were talking to just seconds before! With a love of adventure outdoors and bonding, Shawna has been custom built to facilitate her groups through a memorable and fun time at The Course.

Tim Parr
Program Director

You will never hear stranger catch phrases than out of the mouth of this Kiwi (person from New Zealand). Tim is the most trained and experienced member of our team and brings a heaping scoop of quality to the program. He’s a style fiend who wears funky shoes we make fun of him for but secretly all want.

 

Kevin Alvord  Facilitator This Weaverville native packs a whole load of outdoor experience, leadership and fun into one human body. Growing up in the Trinity Alps, Kevin has developed an organic outlook on life which is refreshing and inspiring. With a background that ranges from setting fire to forests with napalm (legally), to hooting for owls, Kevin's leadership carries a diverse experience which opens the door to no-nonsense motivation.  This facilitator carries a pack of balanced, down to earth mountain wisdom and understanding for any who dare to draw from it.

Stephanie Figueroa Facilitator Stephanie is a quality, fun loving and adventurous facilitator, who loves to suck the nectar out of life.  She lives in the Coachella Valley, which is known for there massive music festivals, when she's not swinging from ropes in the Trinity Alps, which is known for it's...alps. She sure loves her Christian Crack (Coffee) and hopes in the future to start her very own Christian Crack store, with Spanglish sayings printed on the wall and a mini ropes course for kids to play on while their parents take their 'uppers'. Whilst facilitating our guests, Stephanie's Spanglish may come out from time to time, but it's ok.  Don't let it rattle you.  She's totally legal.  If Stephanie is your facilitator and her sweetness, charm and extensive knowledge of the many countries she's visited are somewhat intimidating, good or bad puns are the way to her corazón (heart) Stephanie enjoys going on long hikes and soaking in the sweet sound of the wild just as much as she enjoys walking through crazy cities and soaking in the sweet sound of city traffic.

Eva Millan Facilitator Eva hails from the far away land of Mexico via Texas. As a facilitator she is laid back and loves to have fun. However, she is sometimes tempted to make challenges harder for people who don't know how to listen (she restrains herself).  Full of factoids and useless trivia, you'll find yourself learning things you never wished to know about; especially forty feet up in the air.  Feel free to ask this self-named Queen of the Nerds anything you wish. Her aspiration of becoming the worlds first female dictator has been put on hold in order to pursue her life-long dreams of cosplaying.

Jonathan Dobernecki Facilitator Jonathan hails from the great nation of Texas. He can do the worm, though this is only partially related to the first line, here.  A man of intrigue and adventure, 13 different countries have been privileged to host this ex radio DJ and hear his many assertions of his love for Jade. (This may seem like a simple and sweet sentiment, but the fact that Jonathan's encouraging voice can be heard from anywhere on the campus may bring some context to these utterances.) Jonathan has the hospitality of Mother Teresa, the diplomacy of Mahatma Gandhi and the speaking prowess of Martin Luther King and therefore is the man to greet most groups.  First impressions matter.

JadE Gutierez
Facilitator

Jahdmy harkens from Mexico and can do pretty well anything.  She's a fantastic facilitator of both ground and course activities and brings a bunch of insight and sweetness to our team, all delivered in her clear, exotic accent.

 While she may not love laziness or the cold, she does love to watch the nervous faces of our guests as she cruises by The Course in her shady panel van. 

Sarah Matson, Denise Boggs, Kylee White & Ella Ross
Kitchen crew  

Without this small squad of scullery soldiers, we would surely all grow faint, weary and possibly even die.
This contingent may not be large, but manages to boast an impressive array of credentials amongst their rank.  
Surfing, quad biking, hitch-hiking across the country, long boarding and winning mascot championships are but a few of the past time actives enjoyed by the hands of these ladies, when they’re not otherwise occupied making delectable delicacies for our guests.
They may be petite and pretty, but don’t under estimate their power and attempt to sneak more home made whipped cream without asking. A state champion wrestler lurks amongst their ranks.
