Frequently Asked Questions

  • Whether you are hiking the entire Appalachian trail or have a family canoeing trip planned in the boundary waters you qualify for this program! We are looking for trips of all types in all shapes and sizes. What matters most is that you are going overnight into bear habitat!

  • That’s just fine! What matters is your passion for adventure. We can help you edit and publish your piece. If need be, we can even interview you on the phone for the articles.

  • Pitch us on the idea! While we are focusing on adventures in the United States and Canada, perhaps you are going into bear country in Japan or Europe. We would love to review your application!
  • You don’t need to be Stephen Spielberg and have a cinema camera to be a BearVault ambassador! Just your phone + free editing tools like Instagram and TikTok are plenty to make fun and engaging videos.
  • That sounds like a lot of fun! We are accepting applications from all types of adventures.
  • No problem! Congratulations on getting on the trail. If selected, we can work together to get your canister to you on the trail and work with your 0 days.

That’s great! Being passionate about learning new things and experiencing the outdoors is a great story that needs to be told. We look forward to reviewing your application.

2023 BearVault Adventure Ambassador Application
City & State is plenty!
No need for details here, just a description like "Thru-hiking the PCT", "Canoeing the Yukon River," or "a couple of overnight Fly Fishing Trips!" No adventure is too big or too small.
For example, "The Wonderland Trail in Washington."
We want all levels of experience, so you can say "I've previously hiked the entire AT", or "This is my first backpacking trip in bear country."
Give us the deets! What inspires you to do this, why this adventure, why now, when is your start date, when do you expect to finish?

Let's get a sense for your short format video skills! 📸

Either drop the link to an Instagram Reel/TikTok you have made previously or make a fun Reel/TikTok on one of the following topics that showcases your personality and style:
- Reconsider this…
- Are you bear ready?
- Tell me a story about the time when everything went wrong.

Submissions will be judged on creativity, effort, and quality.
If you make a new video off of social media or have a private account, you can upload it to Google Drive and share the link below. (Make sure the permissions are set for allowing anyone to view!)

Let's get a sense for your storytelling skills!  ✏️

Either paste in a writing sample you have previously created, or write a short blog style piece on one of the following topics:

- When things went wrong on your trip
- Your choice

Submissions will be judged on how engaging the content is, overall flow, and your unique voice.
This does not affect your eligibility, we’re just interested.
