Introducing Skye Douglas

Skye began her career as a casual employee of Wilderness Escape in 2014 and quickly proved herself to be an extremely valuable member of our team.  In 2015, Skye moved into a permanent, full time OEM role with us.

With a Diploma in Outdoor Recreation and qualifications in numerous outdoor activities, Skye is an extremely experienced instructor who can facilitate the running of your outdoor education camp or day program with ease!

Skye’s 10 years’ experience in the outdoor education industry means she is able to provide our clients with their best ever camp experience.  From mountain biking to sailing to rock climbing, you can rest assured you are in safe hands with Skye.

Meet Your OEM - Rock Climbing

Running land-based programs designed for 8 to 11-year old’s are Skye’s most favourite kind of program, but she admits that while she is partial to this type of program, she also enjoys working with other age groups.  Skye believes in

“…taking personal responsibility, learning resilience and pushing through activities even when feeling uncomfortable and using the support of the group around you to help you through is key.”

Meet Your OEM - Sailing

With so many great experiences, Skye is hard pressed to pick a favourite one, but helping and supporting scared children down a cliff when abseiling is right up there.  As she says

“…when a child says they can’t do something, I love being able support and coach them and show them that they can push through and that they can do it.”

Meet Your OEM - Rock Climbing

After a busy week of being out running programs or camps and ensuring kids have the best experience ever, Skye likes to kick back and spend her time relaxing with her furbabies and fiancé.  Skye is actively involved with her local netball club and loves getting out onto the court and giving the other team a run for their money!

Skye says that the most important thing for teachers to know about school camps is that

“…kids can achieve anything they find challenging with the help and support of themselves, teachers and others around them.  They just need to be put into a controlled, safe situation to show them that.”
