Be aware that our season is fairly short and we expect our staff to be available throughout the entirety of the summer. We do our best to work around requested time off or sometimes other prior commitments like summer school on a limited basis. If you already booked tickets to Europe for the month of July, maybe get back to us next summer. For all guiding positions we require, at the very least, up-to-date Basic FirstAid and CPR. EMTs and WFRs are a plus.

Check out more information about our Swiftwater Rescue Course and rafting Guide School. We are seeking both brand new and experienced guides. We look forward to hearing from you!
