Overview

Application Deadline: February 13th, 2021 for positions starting March 1, 2021

We are currently accepting applications for 2021 positions.

Many dream of working in the outdoor industry, but few find opportunities for real-world training like this one. Assistant guiding at Zion Adventures is demanding, rewarding, and extremely educative. Assistant Guides spend their season under the tutelage of our corps of Lead Guides, learning to manage risk, maintain equipment, teach technical skills, and facilitate amazing field experiences with our clients. At season’s end, many Assistant Guides feel ready to lead trips on their own and stay on staff to lead trips the following season. We invite our applicants to view working with us as a career opportunity, not just a brief stop on a seasonal work journey.
