There are just a few spots left in our summer 2012 whitewater guide school so get your application in prontissimo if you want join us! This year, as always, we’ll cover all the basics of running a professional whitewater rafting trip with All-Outdoors. Topics include reading water and running rapids, essential equipment, preparing meals riverside, trip logistics, company philosophy and policy, and of course lots of bad jokes. Guide school is hands-on! While we welcome one and all, everyone will be working hard as a team and as individuals all week long–this ’ain’t no vacation! But . . . plenty of time for fun as well–hello, why are we in this business if not for the love of it??
Participants will spend their days on the river, and their nights as well–get ready for starry skies, dirty sleeping bags, and firing up the campstove to make your morning coffee. Late nights around the campfire are common……..hence all those bad bad jokes…….
