Dylan Mayes

Adventure Program Facilitator

Dylan first developed a taste for adventure sports while growing up in Africa attending international schools. His family traveled extensively throughout the region and spent the holidays hiking, biking, camping, canoeing, and watching wildlife in remote areas of the continent. These experiences not only interested Dylan in adventure sports, but more importantly, gave him the opportunity to interact with people from many different cultures and backgrounds. It is the ability to understand and connect that is key to providing an enjoyable and educational adventure experience. This involves not only being able to get along with a variety of people but also to be able to provide them with a context that enables them to relate to the adventure experience in a meaningful way. 
Dylan has worked as a professional guide, and in outdoor recreation, since 2011. He has worked both here in the United States as well as abroad. He has acted as a guide for Rock Climbing, Canyoneering, Mountain Biking, Hiking, Backpacking, Canoeing, White Water Rafting/Kayaking, Cross Country Skiing, High Ropes Courses, Snowmobiling, and Multi-Day Cross Country Off-Road Motorcycles. 
Dylan received a B.S. in Recreation and Parks Management from Frostburg State University and an A.A.S in Adventure Sports Management from Garrett College. He is certified as an American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) Single Pitch Instructor, Leave No Trace Trainer, National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) Wilderness First Responder, American Canoe Association (ACA) Swift Water Rescue Training, and is a Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) Advanced Open Water Diver. 
In his free time, Dylan enjoys rock climbing, mountain biking, canyoneering, diving, yoga, and kayaking.
