By the time Josh Bossin graduated from JSC in 2012, he had a range of skills and experience that made his transition into a career in Outdoor Education an easy one. Among his hands-on, real-world experiences at JSC were running a week-long day camp for 6th-grade students, managing the on-campus climbing gym, and serving as president of the college Outing Club. Josh also took advantage of JSC’s study away options by doing a National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) Patagonia semester course during the fall semester of his junior year — and all of the credits transferred toward his degree.
Since graduation, Josh stays on the move. He spends his fall and winter working as a rock, ice, and alpine guide for Adventure Spirit Guides, a Vermont-based private guide service operating in VT, NY, and NH. In the spring he heads south to instruct a 30-day expedition-style class for Outdoor Recreation students at Radford University in Virginia. His summers are spent in Alaska, teaching Glacier Mountaineering and Backpacking courses for NOLS.
