Our Staff

Recruited from around the World, our hard working, intelligent, relational and service oriented staff is hand-picked and trained to meet the needs of each individual that attend our adventures. All of our guides are certified in First Aid/CPR. The ITW staff is hired through an application and interview process and is considered on the basis of character, previous related experience, teachability, trustworthiness in working with young people, and competence.

In addition, our staff provides younger participants with the unique opportunity to interact with young adults who deeply desire to be solid role models for today’s high school & college students. Guides make every effort to build authentic relationships with our guests, whether it is during a half day white water rafting trip or a seven day wilderness backpacking adventure. No matter of where your child is from, or what their personality is like, rest assured that our staff of 5 will reach out to your son or daughter in a unique way this summer, providing them with an experience they will not soon to forget.

We believe that the quality of your child’s experience is greatly dependent upon the quality of our staff. Our guides love what they do and love sharing the outdoors and Northern Italy with others. For more information see “About” and “Our Staff”.

Staff Training

One of our ministry core values is a commitment to training. We take the training and preparation of our guides very seriously, because we desire to provide you with excellence and service each and every time you visit us. Therefore, we incorporate the highest standards of development in all of our training programs.

What does all of this mean? It means that we care about you, our guest, and that we are committed to providing the best outdoor experience available. We believe our preparation and attention to detail will provide you with an unforgettable experience.

Into the Wilderness Experience

Established 2009 Services provided for over 5 Italian youth and family camps.

Safety Concerns

ITW works hard to minimize unnecessary risks and takes precaution with all activities we guide, as evident by our extensive guide training.  We have an excellent track record of managing risks and caring for our guests. We want your kids to have fun and to be challenged! Nonetheless, we want to provide an environment that neither puts them at unnecessary risk nor limits their potential to fully enjoy each and every activity.

Are outdoor adventure activities safe?

No, there are risks in any outdoor activity, whether you are rafting, backpacking, or rock climbing. These risks are what lend to the very nature of the experience and most often provide the excitement and adventure associated with the activity. Our guides undergo training, including learning principles of risk management and decision making that lend to minimizing, but never eliminating, the risk in each activity. No activity is risk free.

Into the Wilderness is a drug and alcohol free environment.
