If you love nature and are into extreme sports, becoming a whitewater rafting guide might sound like a dream job to you. Well… you’re in luck! Our River Guide Training Program starts in May, and you’re just in time to sign up.
Why Should I Become a Whitewater Rafting Guide?
Imagine waking up in the morning on a sunny day and getting ready to head out into a national park to enjoy the beautiful scenery, the sound of the water hitting the rocks, and the smell of sun tanning lotion. All of this because you’re about to go whitewater rafting. The best part of it all is that you’re not on vacation. This is your job.
You don’t necessarily have to be a college student to become a whitewater rafting guide. Many people who already have full-time jobs have become guides. That just goes to show that there’s always room for the things you’re passionate about. Being a youngster is not a requirement either. There are older men and women who are whitewater rafting guides, and they are some of the best guides out there.
Whitewater Guide class from May 22 through May 31
Our program meets and exceeds the requirements of Colorado Statute 33-32-105.5, which provides for the minimum qualifications of a professional river guide. Our Guide Training program is ten days of actual training, usually with a day off sometime in the middle, on several rivers. Space is limited. $600 per person includes food on the camping trip and camping fees. During the class, the trainees will see class I-IV rapids and possibly class V. We train on a variety of rapids: Arkansas River, Clear Creek, Lawson, Buena Vista, and possibly Canyon City.
Come sign up for our River Guide Training Program in Colorado. Even a bad day rafting is better than a good day most other places. What’s not to love?
