Explorations


Trout Creek, MT





Outdoor Adventure Guide


Description:
Explorations Summer Adventure Program immerses students in a variety of expeditions and experiences that are dynamic, fun, and build upon the innate strengths of each student. Students learn high adventure skills such as rafting, flat water canoeing, rock climbing, mountain-biking, sea-kayaking and back country hiking. Throughout each adventure, students are encouraged to practice self-reliance, and to build healthy interdependent relationships within the group by engaging in appropriate communication and meaningful team work. These skills provide a launching pad for successful future endeavors as students return to school, re-integrate into the family, or move toward life's next challenge.

Explorations is currently seeking applicants for a Seasonal Summer Outdoor Adventure Guide. Outdoor Adventure Guides accompany our summer students during all backcountry expeditions, providing professional and skillful instruction in an environment of safety. Guides work with our entire team to teach critical expedition skills, effective communication techniques, and team-building activities, as well as make it a priority to provide daily opportunities for leadership to each member of the trip. Our guides know that some lessons can only be learned firsthand – and look forward to teachable moments with each student.

At the end of the summer, options for continued employment in our residential program may be available.

Requirements:
  • 21+ years old
  • BS/BA degree in related field.
