Blake-John Travers, Course Leader

Blake-John Travers, Educo Course Leader

After having spent two years as a student, I developed a passion for Educo and continued to return almost every season as a staff. I love the opportunities Educo gives youth and the amazingly supportive community that surrounds the programs. The mountains are the driving force for me; they allow kids to experience the wilderness and grow in character.

During the winter, I work as a carpenter and run my own photo and video productions company: PlayTree Productions. When I’m not working, I’m skiing big lines or doing tricks in the terrain park. I hope to one day to merge my passions for skiing and videography and step into the ski film industry.

Blake-John is a Course Leader with certifications in Occupational First Aid, Wilderness First Aid (90-hour) and Swiftwater Rescue. He uses his handy carpentry skills to ensure structures and equipment at Educo are safe and well-maintained for all youth to use.
