CRE is seeking to hire a few experienced guides to join our summer staff in guiding multi-day whitewater rafting trips in Idaho on the Main Salmon River. CRE guides are a fun-loving and thoughtful group of people with a tremendous passion for nature and wilderness. CRE guides love boating, but they love sharing nature with our guests even more. Guiding for CRE can be hard work, full of long hours in sometimes physically demanding situations. Yet our guides find it incredibly rewarding to enrich lives through safe and memorable outdoor experiences. To do so, CRE hires guides who are committed to excellence in hospitality and safety. A CRE guide strives to provide meaningful interpretation to guests, supports conservation efforts, has a desire to grow and learn, and endeavors to achieve the best in their professional and personal lives. Does this sound like you? Then apply to join our team!
