Guide Training 2006

This spring weather makes me realize that spring is on it's way! The warm breezes and little pussy willows make me feel those butterflies and tingles that I always get at high water time!
This year's guide school is shaping up to be The Best Ever!
Since we started the Guide School 4 or 5 years ago - it has been a great experience for all involved. Many people who come to us with No whitewater experience ending up having what they so often tell me is the best summer of their lives. Wow! As a person who has lived for summer since first attended summer camp in 1981, I can say that I couldn't be prouder to be a part of something so important, enriching and Wonderful!
Becoming a Raft Guide requires hard work, dedication and motivation. Our best guides, and the people that we know who really enjoy guiding are people who are charismatic, optimistic, funny and open to learning and growing. The best Whitewater Paddlers are humble people who continue the learning process with every river experience.
We are filling up for our Guide School - and I'm happy to report that we are %100 female so far! So guys, get on it if you are thinking about it!
Do we hire everyone from the Guide School?
We can't Guarantee employment for obvious reasons, but if you are motivated, friendly and willing to put in the time to train, chances are, we will have work for you...
Summer 2006 is going to be Awesome!

Tell me about the Guide School. I've been oaring the Blackfoot for four years now so my husband can fish. I'm a 50 year old female and am absolutely exhilarated by each experience through the rapids!
