The Basics:

The Mountain Lab School Instructor Program is designed to provide individuals interested in Christian based Outdoor Education the opportunity to gain experience, knowledge and skills related to this dynamic and valuable ministry. By working as an instructor for IdRaHaJe’s Mountain Lab School, you will receive extensive training, mentorship, and support while gaining valuable experience.

About the Mountain Lab School:

Since 1983, the Mountain Lab School Program has been teaching and challenging thousands of students. Each semester public schools, charter schools, Christian schools and home school groups make their way to IdRaHaJe for a Rocky Mountain educational experience unlike any other! From Pioneer Study to Survival Skills, and Animal Tracking to Rock Climbing, students from 5th–12th grade get a chance to get out of the city, breathe the fresh mountain air, learn valuable lessons about nature, history, and themselves, and experience the great outdoors and the God who made it all! Our program is unique from most outdoor education programs in that the camp staff teach the classes and run the programs and activities. Every student takes part in hands-on learning as they attend various classes and activities. All the classes taught meet or exceed Colorado State educational standards. The Mountain Lab School is a wonderful addition to and extension of any student’s education. Learn more about IdRaHaJe.
