About the teacher:
Being outdoors brings out the best in Pat Barczys - and it always has. From the time he was very young, it’s been the same: if it’s outside, you can count him in and count on him being interested and invested. The only thing that makes Pat happier than being outside is sharing his passion for the outdoors with others. Pat started helping his friends and family plan adventures tailored to their interests and experience levels and it was so rewarding he wanted to keep doing it and make it his life’s work.
