Job Description & Requirements

Beginner and Experienced Guide positions are available for the 2022 summer season.  Training begins toward the end of May.  Mad Adventures has guide positions available at our Dumont office for Clear Creek & our Kremmling office for the Upper Colorado River.

Being a raft guide is not just about taking people down the river. From general appearance to conduct with customers, there is a high level of professionalism that is always expected from you as you represent Mad Adventures.

It is necessary for guides to train and work throughout the season on a very flexible and highly available schedule. Keep in mind that the weekends and holidays are our busiest times.

Mad Adventures offers a free raft guide training course for inexperienced applicants that begins in the second half of May. The time necessary for each student to become proficient in the skills required to guide commercially, varies. It is anticipated that all students will be certified by mid-June. Once certified, your job offer is confirmed, and you can begin employment as a raft guide.

We offer affordable employee housing based on availability. And pay is based on experience. For those interested in more than just a summer job, let's talk! With our sister company, Grand Adventures, potential winter positions are also available.
