I CAME TO BOSS BECAUSE...
I actually worked with a few BOSS instructors at Aspen Achievement Academy and was curious. I admired BOSS's "old school" approach to being outdoors. I knew I had to work here.
I TEACH AT BOSS BECAUSE...
I teach at BOSS because I think a lot of modern programs lack what BOSS offers - an authentic immersion in the wilderness. BOSS courses students a very real, profound experience. And I love the staff I work with.
