Tristan Hassanzadeh Trip Leader

I was drawn to Northwaters-Langskib by our philosophy of “empowering young people to grow to the best version of themselves”. I am eager to facilitate personal growth and life changing experiences. I find it easy to express compassion, have effective interpersonal skills and a variety of experiences as a trip leader. I get the most enjoyment of seeing the kids slowly realize what they are capable of.

My experience in the outdoors began with Tripper Dave’s Junior Adventure Company. Here, I worked closely with children aged from seven to sixteen. Another set of experiences I have are in the Outdoor Adventure Program in Algonquin College. In this program, I received extensive training on professionalism, risk management, leadership skills, and technical guiding skills. I have experience as a raft guide on the Ottawa River, Gatineau River, Rouge River, and the Jacques Cartier River with the program.
