Our Leaders

Staff

Each Outback trips is is led by at least two qualified instructors, most of whom are still studying at UCSD. Our leaders have a background in wilderness and leadership skills. For trips that venture into the wilderness, there is at least one leader trained in back country medicine. All groups maintain at most a 6:1 student:instructor ratio to ensure quality instruction and facilitate relationship building. Instructors combine their formal wilderness training with group development and interpersonal skills to provide an environment for personal adventure, learning and growth.

We're a dynamic crew who has spent countless hours in the wilderness learning the skills to manage risk and create fun experiences.

Simon Teale - Outdoor Leadership CoordinatorSimon Teale

Simon is the full time Outdoor Leadership Coordinator at Outback Adventures. He oversees the Outings, Group Adventures and Wilderness Orientation program and trains the student leaders. He provides the home base contact while the groups are in the field.

Simon believes that spending time in nature's wild places builds better people. Over the many years he has spent in the mountains, oceans, deserts, rivers and frozen places he has learnt something of the code of the wilderness, something of the nature of people and something of life's priorities. When not working, you will typically find Simon trying to learn something new. Figuring out how to teach people how to do things they are afraid of remains his favorite challenge.
