Field Instructor - WFR
Caleb O’Connor-Genereaux is a National Center for Outdoor & Educational Education
(NCOAE) field instructor. Caleb has a decade of experience working in the outdoor
education industry, connecting with students and facilitating their learning through his
his love of nature and the environment.
This native of Ryegate, Vermont, was formerly a teaching coordinator for Tracker’s
Earth, which offers summer camps for kids and teens, as well as wilderness survival and
homesteading programs for all ages. Caleb was also program coordinator and a lead
instructor for Roots School, a handicraft school located in Corinth Vermont. And he was
a business owner, program instructor, and lead instructor for Nunivak Outdoors.
Caleb is a Leave No Trace (LNT) master educator, a member of the Association for
Experiential Education, and is a graduate of the NOLS Recreation Avalanche 1 program.
He is also a Wilderness First Responder and is certified for CPR.
When he’s not guiding youth and adult wilderness trips, he’s building custom backpacks
for his friends or creating wood carvings. Like his backpacks and carvings, Caleb believes
everything around him is intricately interwoven in ways he will never be able to fathom.
And from the perspective of the trees, he sees himself as a fleeting presence moving
beneath their arching branches.
When asked about future plans, say 10 years from now, Caleb says he believes he’ll still
be a happy individual because his youth will have been well spent outdoors.
