Student Facilitation Team
About the Team
At the core of Ramble Outdoors are the student facilitators. This dedicated team of students is trained and equipped to deliver the program’s experiences (clinics, workshops, challenge course experiences, 1st year orientation trips, etc). During their first year with the program, students must select either the Challenge Course or Outdoor Experiences track. After the first year, students can serve on both teams.
How to Get Involved
No experience is necessary! All that is required is the willingness to take a risk. Most students come with little to no outdoor experience. You can participate in our SF Outdoor Leadership Workshop or, if you have a significant amount of previous experience, email Paul Miller at email@example.com to request an application.
The Facilitation Workshop
The workshop is an excellent way to acquire the skills, knowledge and abilities required to be hired as a student facilitator. For more information and to apply, download the SF Outdoor Leadership Workshop 2015 (PDF).

Student Facilitator Team
Hannah Helminiak is an Environmental Studies and Anthropology major. She is from Arlington Heights, IL, and will graduate in 2016. Hannah works at the Challenge Course 'to bring people closer together as one unit, to provide a safe space to discuss and work out differences, and to get people more in tune with nature in the meantime.' Her bucket list travel experience is to packpack across Europe. Her favorite Chicago event is learning cultural dances in Grant Park in the summer.
Her favorite quote? 'Short term pain for long term gain.'
Hannah Krumbhaar is working on a Master of Social Work, and will graduate in 2016. She is from Paoli, PA, and is excited about working at the Challenge Course. She says, 'I am passionate about giving people the tools to grow self-awareness and foster confidence within a safe space. The outdoors as a learning tool is unlike any other context to be a leader.' Her bucket list travel experience is to hike the Pacific Crest Trail, and the Lake Shore path is her favorite part of Chicago.
Her favorite quote? 'We only learn who we are by knowing others.'
