All Junior Guides, once selected, will have at least one week this summer where they will work side by side with our Outdoor Guides to provide an exceptional adventure trip with unique outdoor education opportunities to program participants.
Junior Guides will help lead program participants to find their passion for the outdoors through daily lessons, team building games and mentoring opportunities. They will be involved in all aspects of our trips from itinerary planning to cooking food to managing a group. Junior Guides will attend a pre-trip meeting to discuss duties, expectations and to receive beginning guide training that will help them excel during their week volunteering. Required pre-trip research and guidebook reading will be expected from volunteers.
